We report on a two-axis analog micromirror array with high fill factor (96%) and large mechanical scan angles (±4.4° and ±3.4°). To our knowledge, this is the highest linear fill factor ever reported for two-axis analog micromirror arrays. A 1×14 wavelength-selective switch (WSS) was also demonstrated using the mirror array. This is the largest number of port count ever reported for WSS. The fiber-to-fiber insertion loss is 8.2 dB. Switching of <2 msec has been achieved.
