Paper Abstract

The “MEMS-in-the-lens” active lens for a laser scanning microscope comprises a high numerical aperture front element, a 3D+ MOEMS beam scanner and a collimating back lens. The scanner utilizes a silicon gimbal with SU-8 polymer flexures and deformable membrane mirror. The mirror aperture is 4 mm in diameter, and is capable of 9 μm deflection for focus control, with four annular electrodes to allow tuning of primary and secondary spherical aberration. The gimbal supports tip/tilt actuation up to ±3° for lateral beam scanning. We show confocal imaging using a benchtop mockup of the active lens, illustrating the potential for this approach to support 3D microscopy for optical biopsy applications.
