Paper Abstract

The Fabry-Perot interferometer (FP) can be used as a kind of filter for obtaining spectral information of targets in several wavelength ranges such as in the visible or infrared regions. So far, the spectral imaging devices based on FP effect mainly include the electrically controlled liquid-crystal filtering structures and the micro-electro-mechanical filtering architectures (MEMS). MEMS are generally micro-structures that integrate micro-sensors for converting incident microbeams into arrayed electronic signals and micro-actuators. The MEMS-FP filter constructed by combining the MEMS and FP functions, can be further integrated into a chip-level imaging spectrometer to achieve spectral imaging operation. The design of distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) is an important part to obtain a high transmittance for MEMS-FP structure. Different number of layers of optical film is calculated and compared in this paper and the transmittance can reach 82% and the FWHM is ~ 1nm in the infrared region of 3-5um. Angle of incidence is also considered and the simulation result shows poor robustness. We propose that two liquid-crystal microlens arrays can be mounted on FP arrays to get a high filling-factor and a more flexible range of incident angles.
