Call for
MOEMS (micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems) are highly miniaturized, highly functional MEMS-based optical systems. Typically fabricated using batch microfabrication technologies, MOEMS combine optical, electrical and mechanical functionality in complex yet robust standalone microsystems.

MOEMS are found in myriad applications, ranging from displays and human interface devices to photonic communications systems and medical instrumentation. Combining a broad range of materials, from silicon to polymers, with a wide spectrum of manufacturing technologies, from nano-lithography to large-area printing, MOEMS represent one of the most interdisciplinary fields in photonics.

“MOEMS and Miniaturized Systems” solicits contributions from all disciplines contributing to MOEMS, including new materials and fabrication techniques, novel devices and components, advanced system concepts and the latest applications.

JOINT SESSION with OE202 and OE203
TOPIC: Spatial Light Modulator

Various technologies including MEMS, LCD, lasers, LED, and OLED are under development to build high-performance projection and flat panel display systems. They are needed to provide large display sizes or high light efficiency in comparison to integrated displays for mobile phones, digital cameras, biomedical instruments, and personal digital assistants with ever decreasing size. This special session will give a comprehensive overview about recent development activities and results of the various light modulating technologies from modulating devices to module/system integration for novel applications.

JOINT SESSION with OE202 and BiOS BO103: Endoscopic Microscopy
This special joint session is in conjunction with BiOS conference BO103: Endoscopic Microscopy. Papers are solicited that address the unique challenges to deliver high-fidelity microscopic imaging of tissue with a miniaturized instrument platform. Example topics include mechanisms for distal beam scanning, focus control and aberration correction using MOEMS devices, MEMS actuators or electrowetting optics; proximal scanning based on DMD or other SLM technologies; novel optical assembly and alignment techniques; highly corrected miniature optical systems.
