Call for
The Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) was conceived at Texas Instruments in 1987, following a decade of work on analog deformable-mirror and cantilever-mirror devices. This particular optical MEMS or MOEMS device has been applied most famously to digital cinema projection systems, enterprise projectors and highly portable personal displays, all of which were enabled by DLP® technology. The DMD has been commercially available since 1996 leading to hundreds of products and innovative research projects spanning consumer, industrial, medical and automotive markets.

As was evident by this well-attended conference at Photonics West 2019, the DMD and associated evaluation modules are enabling many exciting new applications and equipment beyond traditional display systems. By bringing together scientists, technologists, and developers, the goal of this conference is to highlight new and interesting means of applying DLP technology to solve problems across various markets.

Technical areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D metrology, machine vision, and factory automation
  • compressive sensing
  • computational imaging
  • hyperspectral imaging
  • security and surveillance
  • spectroscopy (including mobile spectroscopy)
  • volumetric scanning.

  • 3D displays (light-field, autostereoscopic, volumetric, multi-views, and holographic)
  • augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality
  • automotive interior (head-up displays, interior displays, interior lighting)
  • automotive exterior (headlight illumination, exterior lighting)
  • intelligent lighting or displays.

  • additive manufacturing / 3D printing
  • coding and marking
  • direct imaging lithography
  • industrial printers and exposure systems.

  • biochemical visualization
  • microscopy
  • ophthalmology.

  • beam steering / wave-front shaping
  • optical micromanipulation
  • spectrally tunable light sources.

  • NIR applications
  • optical telecommunications
  • UV applications.

JOINT SESSION with BiOS BO500 and OE203
Biomedical Imaging and Cell Manipulation using a Digital Micromirror Device or MEMS Array

This special joint session is in conjunction with BiOS conference BO500: Imaging, Manipulation, and Analysis of Biomolecules, Cells, and Tissues. The utilization of the DMD and other Optical MEMS arrays to manipulate light has numerous medical applications ranging from cancer detection to operating room aids to the manipulation of individual cells.

Papers are solicited that address the uses of a DMD and other Optical MEMS arrays with:
  • 3D medical visualization
  • confocal microscopes
  • cytometers
  • hyperspectral imaging
  • image-guided intervention
  • microscopy
  • optoelectronic tweezers
  • ophthalmology
  • organs on a chip
  • oxygenation measurements
  • phototherapy
  • selectable wavelength light sources
  • spectroscopy (including mobile spectroscopy)
  • structured light or 3D imaging
  • tissue illumination.

JOINT SESSION with OE201 and OE203
Advanced Fabrication using a Digital Micromirror Device or MEMS Array

Active research in the fields of advanced fabrication and MEMS Arrays, such as the digital micromirror device, have shown application and promise for implementing lithography and other forms of high precision printing. The purpose of this joint session is to explore the relationships between MEMS technology and fabrication as they relate to:
  • 3D printing
  • additive manufacturing
  • lithography.
