Paper Abstract

MEMS-based optical microspectrometers are typically composed of MEMS devices for operation as dispersive element or as tunable resonator within an optical system. CMOS-compatible MEMS technologies enable on-chip integration of the MEMS optical components, detector and readout circuits. The actual realization and exploitation of this on-chip functional integration of the entire microspectrometer imposes several challenges. The state-of-the-art and some of the technology and design challenges will be outlined, followed by an introduction to some of the trends and upcoming application of high potential.
