A Photonic MEMS Polarization Switch

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper presents a photonic polarization switch based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. The polarization switch can change the pathway of the different polarized light via optical tunneling effects. By controlling the incident angle of the input light, the output polarization state can be switched between two different polarization states. The polarization switch has promising applications on both photonic circuit and bio-detecting.
