Abstract
The variable optical attenuator (VOA) has played very important roles in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) systems, it is an essential optical component aimed to continuously adjust the optical power transmitting in optical networks. In this paper, we began to study a new type of variable optical attenuator using polymer liquid crystal material. We hanged the liquid crystal technologies and MEMS technologies together to design variable optical attenuator. This paper describes the methods and process of the preparation of polymer liquid crystal material, presents some experimental results obtained in laboratory.
