Paper Abstract

An optical switch based on micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) technology has been analyzed and designed. In the proposed switch the collimating lenses as commonly used in MEMS switches have been eliminated thus making the switch smaller in size. The switch characteristics based on theoretical analysis and experimental results have been compared.
