report a novel, miniature Fourier transform spectrometer with a linear
architecture that works by sampling a standing wave.
The spectrometer consists of: an electrostatically actuated
MEMS mirror with on-resonance displacement of up to 65 mm,
a thin-film photodetector, and an electrical back plane for actuating
The integrated device offers mirror stability and fixed
relative alignment of the three components.
The spectrometer has better than 32 nm resolution at 633 nm.
