Fluidic Optical Switch by Pneumatic Actuation


We proposed a fluidic optical switch based on pneumatic actuation. A small amount of liquid is suspended in a cylinder in vertical position and separates the hollow cylinder into two chambers. A clear pillar with a ball head is fixed in the top chamber. An air channel is used to connect the bottom chamber and a syringe. By controlling the air pressure of… (More)
