A mechanically controlled PhC slab waveguide device using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology was proposed. Optical properties of the device change sensitively with the small shift of the second structure because of the near field interacton of the lightwave in the PhC waveguide. Feasibility of the proposed device was demonstrated numerically and experimentally. Thus, the approach proposed can be widely used to realize other functions in PhC devices.
