Paper Abstract

The synergy that exists between MEMS technology and free- space optics can be exploited to provide low cost solutions to many of the problems arising in modern dynamic WDM networks. We describe an optical modulator, an electrically controlled variable attenuator, a WDM equalizer, and a programmable wavelength add/drop system.
