Paper Abstract

We demonstrated that active integrated optical (IO) devices based on the IO nanomechanical effect can be actuated by electrostatic forces. In particular, we demonstrated: (1) an intensity modulator, (2) the deflection, and (3) the focusing and defocusing of a guided wave in a planar waveguide.
