MEMS Spatial Light Modulators using Surface Micromachining
Surface micromachining has become increasingly popular in numerous electro-optical applications, where high-speed and high resolution are mandatory. Diffraction gratings are among the most commonly used optical elements in a wide range of applications ranging from digital printing, laser marking, spectroscopy, metrology, and numerous other emerging applications where precise manipulation of light is required. 3D-imaging applications such as LiDAR, structured illumination in Time-Of-Flight cameras can also benefit from this technology.
