Paper 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.
