A MEMS tunable hybrid plasmonic-Si (HP) waveguide is investigated, showing very large changes of both effective refractive index and propagation loss when applying bias voltage. Preliminary experimental results show that: with 15μm MEMS structure in Si waveguide platform, the extinction ratio can be over 20dB between “on” and “off” states.
