Title (EN) MIRROR BASED MICROELECTROMECHANICAL SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) MICROSYSTÈMES ÉLECTROMÉCANIQUES REPOSANT SUR MIROIR ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Unlike most MEMS device configurations which simply switch between two positions in many optical devices the state of a MEMS mirror is important in all transition positions. It may determine the characteristics of an optical delay line system and by that an optical coherence tomography system in one application and in another the number of wavelength channels and the dynamic wavelength switching capabilities in the other. The role of the MEMS is essential and it is responsible for altering the paths of the different wavelengths in either device. It would be beneficial to improve the performance of such MEMS and thereby the performance of the optical components and optical systems they form part of. The inventors have established improvements to the design and implementation of such MEMS mirrors as well as optical waveguide technologies to in-plane optical processing as well as the mid infrared for optical spectroscopy.
(FR) Contrairement à la plupart des configurations de dispositif MEMS qui commutent simplement entre deux positions, dans de nombreux dispositifs optiques l'état d'un miroir MEMS est important dans l'ensemble des positions de transition. Les caractéristiques d'un système de ligne à retard optique peuvent être déterminées et, de ce fait, un système de tomographie à cohérence optique peut être déterminé dans une application, et dans une autre application, le nombre de canaux de longueur d'onde et les capacités de commutation de longueur d'onde dynamique. Le rôle du MEMS est crucial et celui-ci est chargé de modifier les trajets des différentes longueurs d'onde dans l'un ou l'autre dispositif. Il serait avantageux d'améliorer la performance de ces MEMS et ainsi la performance des composants optiques et des systèmes optiques dont ils font partie. Les inventeurs ont établi des améliorations apportées à la conception et la mise en œuvre de ces miroirs MEMS ainsi qu'aux technologies de guide d'ondes optique pour le traitement optique dans le plan et l'infrarouge moyen pour une spectroscopie optique.
