Paper Abstract

A micromechanically tunable Fabry Perot filter where the optical wavelength is tuned by moving a slider in the cavity is designed: the Fabry Perot filter is an air cavity in which the optical path ca be increased by inserting a transparent slider; the tuning effect depends on the thickness of the slider. Using a methodology based on a parametric investigation of the technological parameters, the design of a filter is proposed: a lower sensitivity to the position of the slider in the cavity is expected to realize the device using silicon micromachining.
