Assistant Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a new three-year, $210,000 National Science Foundation grant for InP-based MEMS-tunable Optical Filters and Switches. Madhumita Datta, research associate in the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab, is the co-PI. The objective of the project is to develop and test wavelength-selective widely tunable (1250-1650 nm) resonant microcavity filters and switches by on-chip electrostatic micro-electro-mechanical actuation of indium phosphide (InP) waveguides and highly reflective monolithic horizontal mirrors, for broadband optical networks.
