Micromechanical optical switch has a good quality for free-space optical cross connects, particularly in terms of the low insertion loss, low crosstalk, low polarization dependent loss (PDL), wavelength-independence, and bit-rate transparency. In research of micromechanical optical switches, the electrostatic torsion beam actuator is widely used. But this actuator needs high-applied voltage. In this paper, the actuator with the slant counter electrode was proposed and fabricated with tilted 3° (111) silicon wafer.
