Optical MEMS technologies originally developed for the WDM systems have found a wide range of lateral spreading
applications. For instance, we have constructed a novel power-over-fiber type OCT endoscope by using two different
wavelengths for powering an electrostatic MEMS scanner and for optical probing; this work is on the extension of a
MEMS variable optical attenuator. Another example is a Fabry-Perot interferometer for wavelength filtering that has
been redirected to a new use of a tunable color pixel developed in a plastic sheet of large area. We look into the
diverging potential of MEMS in micro optics.
