Micro systems with big commercial potential featured in SPIE journal
Date:3/25/2014

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA Commercial demand is driving high-tech research and development in micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems (MOEMS) for diverse applications such as space exploration, wireless systems, and healthcare. A new special section on Emerging MOEMS Technology and Applications in the current issue of the Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS (JM3) gathers recent breakthrough achievements and explains how such innovations in the photonics field are poised to emerge in the marketplace. The journal is published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

Applications in robotics, remote chemical detection and identification, telescopes, bioimaging for clinical use, 3D imaging, and optical communications are among topics covered in the special section's 15 papers on emerging MOEMS technology applications. Articles are available by subscription or pay-per-view in the SPIE Digital Library. Chris Mack, Lithoguru.org, is Editor-in-Chief of JM3.

"This JM3 special section on emerging MOEMS comprises a collection of excellent papers emphasizing new technologies," said Ed Motamedi of Revoltech Microsystems, a guest editor of the special section. "The section includes outstanding new results in commercial research and development in photonics where micro-optics and MEMS are merged and innovative breakthrough devices come to light."

Along with Motamedi, other guest editors of the special section are Joel Kubby of the University of California, Santa Cruz; Patrick Oden of Texas Instruments Inc.; and Wibool Piyawattanametha of the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center.

The technology is well-suited to meet needs now and in the future, Motamedi said.
