Abstract
We present the design and fabrication of micromachined vertical cavity filters with stress control, which give us novel functions including temperature insensitive operation, thermal wavelength tuning, wavelength trimming and 2-D multi-wavelength integration. The temperature dependence could be freely controlled either for temperature operations or for wide wavelength tuning. In addition, we propose the use of a hollow waveguide in which light can be confined in air for realizing temperature-insensitive waveguide devices. We present various unique features in hollow waveguides and the combination with microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS) gives us novel widely tunable waveguide devices.
