On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We propose a novel type Mach-Zehnder interferometric optical switching device using micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) as a phase shifter. As the analytical result, the amount of stretch length is 70 nm at the applied voltage of 60 V per one phase shifter. The pi-shift is achieved using cascade connections of 4-7 shifters.
