Paper Abstract

We developed a micro optical scanning sensor with the dimension of 2.0 mm X 4.0 mm X 3.0 mm for a micro inspection robot. In this sensor, the functional elements such as a laser diode (light source), photo diodes, pin-holes, a beam splitter, a ball lens, and a PZT thin film actuator driven micro optical scanner are integrated on separate substrates each consisting a functional modules and the substrates are stacked. Performance of the optical sensor depends on its optical characteristics. This sensor has spot size of output beam is 256 micrometer X 580 micrometer at 60 mm from the sensor, output power is 0.5 mW, optical scanning angles are plus or minus 10 deg. two-dimensionally, and detecting sensitivity of photo diodes are 0.3 A/W. The sensor is capable of distance measurement between the sensor and an object at 50 mm plus or minus 10 mm and the object shape recognition two-dimensionally based on the optical scanning method. By using these functions, the sensor can measure dimensions of the object and measuring resolution is less than 0.5 mm.
