Paper Abstract

A 1:2 Micro-Opto-Mechanical switch has been achieved using the combination of 2 technologies: `Integrated Optics' and `Micromachining on Silicon'. The commutation is obtained by means of the mechanical deflection of a cantilever beam driven by an electrostatic force. The first devices show promising characteristics.
