Abstract

This paper reports on new hybrid optomechanical technology for reconfigurable optical networking applications. Unique and versatile functions in the technology were provided by micrometer-scale fused-taper waveguides mounted on microelectromechanical actuating platforms. The proposed technology can endow new degrees of freedom to control spectral response and port-to-port output power of the throughput of multiport fiber-fused-taper devices. Applications in a reconfigurable optical switch, an interband router, and a high-power optical attenuator for optical neworking are discussed.
