A prevalent trend in biological studies and medical diagnosis is development of miniaturized instruments that can be implanted and enable continuing measurements and observations in the living body.  Optical instruments present a challenge in this regards due to the fact that photonic systems do not scale to small sizes as favorably as electronic devices.  This talk will focus on MEMS enabled miniaturization of optical microscopes that enable volumetric imaging of tissue with cellular resolution making them well suited for in-vivo, real-time imaging of physiological processes and disease progression.  The enabling MEMS is a three-dimensional scanning system consisting of two miniaturized scanners.  All reflective optics is used to minimize system size and chromatic dispersion.  The technology allows scaling of the microscopes to less than 3.2 mm in diameter and 5 mm in length, and yields two-dimensional images in real time.  In this presentation, we outline fundamental imaging capabilities and scaling properties of the microscopes, and describe how our MEMS scanner technology and system architecture are designed to optimize the fundamental properties.
The presentation will focus on MEMS technology and do not require expertise in optics or biology.
