Extract

As demonstrated in this issue, the emerging field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is beginning to impact almost every area of science and technology. MEMS have the potential to revolutionize light-wave systems. Microdevices such as optical switches, variable attenuators, active equalizers, add/drop multiplexers (ADMs), optical cross-connects (OXCs), gain tilt equalizers, data transmitters, and many others are beginning to find ubiquitous application in advanced light-wave systems.
