Micro-Opto-Mechanical Photonic Switch

Goals: 
This project started in collaboration with the FMPS research unit. The focus is mainly on opto-mechanics, which can greatly increase the potentialities of both photonics and MEMS research fields combining optical and mechanical characteristics in a single device. More specifically we are studing opto-mechanical resonators, where optical forces can produce oscillations and mechanical movements, creating a micro-opto-mechanical system (MOMS), instead of a micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS).
