Paper Abstract

BeamBox polymer based fiber-optic space switches have been submitted to a reliability qualification program. The results of this program show that these switches meet the requirements for telecommunication applications. Highly stable switches have been obtained by proper design, testing, and optimization of materials, parts, and production processes.
