Reducing Actuation Nonlinearity of MEMS Phase Shifters for Reconfigurable Photonic Circuits

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The low power consumption of MEMS actuators enables large-scale reconfigurable photonic circuits. However, insertion loss and actuation linearity need improvement. By simulations and experiments, we analyze the dominating design parameters affecting linearity and suggest improvements.
