Selected Papers on Optical MEMS
Edited by Victor M. Bright



Victor Bright has produced a useful book entitled "Selected Papers on Optical MEMS."  Owning this book has already saved me time looking up articles.

The book starts with a general overview of optical MEMS and MEMS in general.  Several introductory papers are from sources like the IEEE Spectrum intended for general audiences.  While this group of papers is a bit redundant, they set the stage for the more technical papers that follow.

The book covers a number of topics including surface micromachined optical elements, optical switches, projection displays, deformable mirrors, actuators, spectrometers, fiber optics, light sources, detectors, and  optical elements such as gratings, corner cubes and interferometers.

The R&D activity in micro optical devices has increased dramatically in the last few years.  For fun, I plotted the histogram shown below of papers published in this book vs. the publication date.  As you can see, much of this work is quite recent.  This book by Professor Bright makes this research easily available.

"Selected Papers on Optical MEMS" is published by the SPIE Optical Engineering Press, Bellingham, Washington, ISBN 0-8194-3129-X, phone 360 676 3290, fax 360 647 1445, web http://www.spie.org.
 

This review is by William Trimmer, Vice President of Standard MEMS.  He organized and was editor of the IEEE / ASME "Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems," co-organized the first MEMS Workshop, and recently published the IEEE Press book "Micromechanics and MEMS."  His email is william@trimmer.net .  His is web web page at http://www.trimmer.net contains many useful references.
