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 demonstrated MEMS-controlled optical switching operation in photonic crystal waveguide. An extinction ratio of ~ 10 dB and a modulation frequency of ~ 500Hz were obtained at an applied voltage of 60 V.
