Nanofabrication technology has made significant progress more recently, and it is now possible to further scale MEMS down to nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). The fusion of MEMS/NEMS with nanophotonic elements opens up new possibilities and creates novel, functional photonic devices and systems featuring dynamic tunability, enhanced performance and a higher level of integration.
This edited book describes some of the most recent results in the field of optical MEMS/NEMS and nanophotonics, as well as the emergence of fascinating new devices, systems and applications. In addition to being a source of information on recent photonic MEMS/NEMS devices, this book provides the necessary fundamentals for engineers and researchers interested in micro- and nanofabrication, MEMS/NEMS, micro-optics and nanophotonics.
