Re: MEMS back in vogue
Teramount has some internal mirror structures that are not MEMS.

Using MEMS mirrors for open-air switching is presumably still feasible, but I haven't heard about anyone pursuing that in a long time. On the other hand, maybe that's because I haven't been listening in the right places.

I suppose I could look it up, but that would be almost like work. Does anybody know if using MEMS mirrors for switching is still considered a viable option, even if only in some distant future?

MEMS back in vogue
At the tailend of the last telecom bubble, optical MEMS was in vogue. Is it a replay or has the tech matured enough to make economical sense. Incidentally, the AT&T powerline news yesterday is also a retrend of that era, so is that real this time around?
