15 November 2002 Recent advances in optical MEMS devices and systems
Author Affiliations +
We have developed novel optical micro-electro-mechanical systems, (MEMS) and nano-electro-mechanical, (NEMS) optical components for applications including imaging, switching, and optical integrated circuits. This paper provides an overview of current optical MEMS/NEMS research projects in our integrated photonics laboratory at UCLA. Three optical MEMS/NEMS devices: a large, 1 mm diameter, scanning micromirror for imaging applications, an analog micromirror array for network switching applications, and a nanoscale photonic crystal switch for integrated photonic circuit applications will be described.
