An electrostatically actuated 1 x 2 moving-fiber switch

Abstract

A 1/spl times/2 moving-fiber switch for optical protection switching is presented. A detailed measurement of the optical performance is given. A coupling loss of 0.5 dB is achieved in the lensless optical path based on butt-coupled standard single-mode fibers. The actuation voltage is approximately 30 V. Both the electrostatic parallel-plate actuators and… (More)
