A highly-integrated MEMS-based bimodal probe design with integrated piezoelectric fiber scanner for simul-
taneous endomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) is presented. The two modalities rely on
spectrally-separated optical paths that run partially in parallel through a micro-optical bench system, which has
dimensions of only 13 x 2 x 3mm3 (l x w x h). An integrated tubular piezoelectric fiber scanner is used
to perform en face scanning required for three dimensional OCT measurements. This scanning engine has an
outer diameter of 0.9mm and a length of 9mm, and features custom fabricated 10 μm thick polyimide flexible
interconnect lines to address the four piezoelectric electrodes. As a platform combining a full-field and a scanning
imaging modality, the developed probe design constitutes a blue print for a wide range of multi-modal endoscopic

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
