Paper Abstract

The DMD™ (Digital Micromirror Device) has become an integral part of the instrumentation for many applications. Prior characterization of this device has been focused on its use in DLP™ (TI Digital Light Processing) projector applications where a collimated wavefront impinges on the DMD. The results of such investigations are not applicable to using DMDs at the focal plane of an optical system where it is used as a slit mask (e.g. in a multi-object spectrometer). In order to study the DMD scattering function in this second case, a subpixel spot scanning system has been assembled. The scattered light collected from this system allowed a subpixel scattering function to be determined for the DMD when illuminated by a converging beam.
