238 x 238 Micromechanical optical cross connect

This letter describes a 238x238 beam-steering optical cross connect constructed using surface micromachined mirrors. Its innovative optical configuration resulted in superior optical performance, achieving a mean fiber-to- fiber insertion loss of 1.33 dB and a maximum insertion loss for all 56 644 connections of 2 dB.
