MOEMS-MEMS, the microtechnology and nano- optics conference, part of SPIE Photonics West

Present your work at MOEMS-MEMS, part of SPIE Photonics West

Present your work at SPIE MOEMS-MEMS, part of SPIE Photonics West, on the latest optical MEMS, biomedical MEMS and sensors, microfluidics, MEMS, MOEMS, micro-optics, adaptive optics research. This conference explores how MEMS and MOEMS will enable the mass-produced miniaturized products and integrated systems of the future.

All conferences in the MOEMS-MEMS symposium welcome proceedings papers related to MOEMS and to all related fields of MEMS, including, but not limited to: Bio MEMS, RF MEMS, Optical MEMS, and MEMS Adaptive Optics where MOEMS and MEMS are defined below:

  • Micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems (MOEMS): the design, fabrication, operation, reliability, and testing of microdevices which contain electrical, mechanical, and optical elements (that is, the merging of micro-optics and MEMS).
  • Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS): the design, fabrication, operation, reliability, and testing of microdevices which contain both electrical and mechanical elements.

Mission Statement
The mission of the MOEMS-MEMS symposium is to enhance the global exchange of emerging information on topics related to micro/nanotechnology in photonics from academic, industrial, and governmental research and development activities. The symposium will provide an active forum for communicating innovative ideas and breakthroughs in all areas of MOEMS, Bio MEMS, Optical MEMS, and RF MEMS. The symposium also provides a forum for presentation of device miniaturization that supports biomedical and life sciences programs to revolutionize medical sciences and improve human life.
