Abstract

In this article we propose a novel mechano-optical switch and dual channel transmitter based on photonic crystal. The device consists of two waveguides and an elliptical cavity in a square lattice structure. Two optical signals at separate wavelengths are inserted in the input waveguide. The elliptical cavity can be rotated using a mechanical force, which results in the control of transmission efficiency at each of the wavelengths. In addition, rotation of the cavity can be considered as a switching action, which changes on–off states of the output signals.
