For MEMS Displays, Projections of Success

Photonics Spectra
Sep 2016
Smaller pixels, better optics result in brighter, higher-contrast images from today’s MEMS-based displays.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, hank.hogan@photonics.com

When it comes to MEMS-based displays, what’s old is new — and now the only game in town. The old, and now only, technology involves projectors, which exploit MEMS chips to create images by bouncing light off either an array of tiny mirrors or a single microscopic mirror. Some of these displays are as big as movie screens. Others are small, near-eye displays. Still others are in-between, such as head-up displays in cars.
