Analog micromirror arrays with orthogonal scanning directions for wavelength-selective 1XN/sup 2/ switches

Abstract

A new high-port-count wavelength selective switch has been realized using two cross-scanning 1-axis analog micromirror arrays in a 4-f optical system. The number of output ports is increased from N to N/sup 2/, where N is the maximum linear port count limited by optical diffraction. Using surface-micromachined micromirrors with hidden vertical combdrives… (More)
