Paper Abstract

Optical microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology or micro-optoelectromechanical systems (MOEMS) technology has experienced rapid growth in recent years and find its application in modern telecommunications, including fiber optics. This technology can provide high-performance features and new functionalities for optical and communication systems. Therefore due to their widespread applications, MEMS variable optical attenuators (VOA) have been one of the most attractive fiber optic components.
