Abstract
Fiber optic switches have become more and more appealing components not only in the field of optical communication, but also in measurements systems, sensors, and data storage. We develop a number of concepts for fiber optic switches, all based on different types of special micro-optic components actuated by miniaturized mechanical systems, primarily piezoelectric actuators. We present micro-optic configurations and discuss their potential for the creation of different types of miniaturized switches.
