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 virtual conference at Photonics West 2021, 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:

PROGRAMMABLE PATTERNING AND ADVANCED IMAGING SOLUTIONS
DISPLAY SOLUTIONS
MANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS
MEDICAL DEVICES
LIGHT MANIPULATION

JOINT SESSION with BiOS BO500 and OE403
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:
JOINT SESSION with OE401 and OE403
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:
JOINT SESSION with OE702 and OE403
AR/VR Displays using DMDs or other SLM Devices

AR/VR is an exciting area of development. Much progress hinges on the capabilities of light modulators. The purpose of this joint session is to explore and demonstrate the capabilities of different light modulators.
