Micromachined Mirrors

Micromachined Mirrors provides an overview of the performance enhancements that will be realized by miniaturizing scanning mirrors like those used for laser printers and barcode scanners, and the newly enabled applications, including raster-scanning projection video displays and compact, high-speed fiber-optic components.
There are a wide variety of methods used to fabricate micromachined mirrors - each with its advantages and disadvantages. There are, however, performance criteria common to mirrors made from any of these fabrication processes. For example, optical resolution is related to the mirror aperture, the mirror flatness, and the scan angle. Micromachined Mirrors provides a framework for the design of micromirrors, and derives equations showing the fundamental limits for micromirror performance. These limits provide the micromirror designer tools with which to determine the acceptable mirror geometries, and to quickly and easily determine the range of possible mirror optical resolution and scan speed.

Dr W J Jenkins In 1977 when the Sheffield Transfusion Centre took delivery of the first GROUPAMATIC blood grouping machine in the UK it was equipped with a sample identification system involving complicated and expensive disposable punched cards. In fact, the cards were so expensive that Dr Wagstaff was unable to find the revenue to support the system. A year later, when Brentwood took delivery of a GROUPAMATIC, we were faced with the same problem, but by chance we heard that KONTRON was developing a laser scanning system for bar code labels and we were able to have our machine modified. Subsequently the Sheffield machine was altered to take the bar code scanner. At about the same time the Bristol Centre was helping TECHNICON with the development of the AUTO GROUPER C-16, and fortunately they decided on a laser reader of the same type for bar code identification. Thus there were three centres with the capability for reading bar codes on blood grouping machines and it became necessary to find someone to produce the bar code labels. There was only on~ printer in the UK who could produce labels to the required specification. To cut the costs of printing, and in the hope of avoiding a wide variation in codes, I invited representatives of centres interested in the problem to a meeting, where we set up what we called the Group of Six. This later became an official Working Party of the Regional Transfusion Directors.

Micromachined scanning mirrors are interesting for a wide variety of applications because of their potential low cost, high speed, low power consumption, and reliability. These mirrors can offer significant advantages over macro-scale mirrors, but the fundamental limitations of scanning mirrors have not been widely discussed.
Miniaturization in electronic systems has led to radical improvements in computers and communications, and micromachining technologies promise to generate such improvements in miniaturized mechanical and optical systems, including specifically higher-speed, smaller, lower-cost scanning mirrors. Micromachined Mirrors provides an overview of the performance enhancements that will be realized by miniaturizing scanning mirrors like those used for laser printers and barcode scanners, and the newly enabled applications, including raster-scanning projection video displays and compact, high-speed fiber-optic components.
There are a wide variety of methods used to fabricate micromachined mirrors - each with its advantages and disadvantages. There are, however, performance criteria common to mirrors made from any of these fabrication processes. For example, optical resolution is related to the mirror aperture, the mirror flatness, and the scan angle. Micromachined Mirrors provides a framework for the design of micromirrors, and derives equations showing the fundamental limits for micromirror performance. These limits provide the micromirror designer tools with which to determine the acceptable mirror geometries, and to quickly and easily determine the range of possible mirror optical resolution and scan speed.
Micromachined Mirrors presents descriptions of mirrors made from two fabrication processes - the surface-micromachining process and the staggered torsional electrostatic combdrive (STEC) high-aspect ratio micromachining process. The mirrors made using these two processes are evaluated for scan speed, optical resolution, ease of manufacture, and reliability.
Micromachined Mirrors also presents an example application of surface-micromachined mirrors: a raster-scanning projection video display. This demonstration shows the advantages of micromachined mirrors (small high-speed scanners) with special attention paid to the major drawback of surface-micromachined mirrors (lower resolution due to dynamic deformation). The successful demonstration of this simple prototype video display helps clarify the importance of the critical performance characteristics to consider when designing micromachined mirrors.


A Guide To Laser Safety

A Guide to Laser Safety is a practical guide to the safe use of lasers in science, education, industry, telecommunications, medicine and entertainment. It explains the nature of laser hazards, the requirement of international safety standards and the effective implementation of safety controls.
A Guide to Laser Safety is divided into three sections. Part One gives an overview of the essentials of laser safety, briefly describing the nature of laser technology, the hazards of laser radiation, the system of laser classification and general approaches to hazard control. Part Two presents the background to laser safety in greater detail, discussing laser operations, the measurement of laser emission and exposure, the biological effects of laser radiation, the management of health and safety, and the quantitative assessment of laser hazards. Part Three considers the practical implementation of laser safety in specific areas of application, covering the use of lasers in science and engineering, industrial processing, medicine, telecommunications and entertainment.
