The technical and economic rationale for the selection and use of MEMS optical scanning devices for Retinal Scanning Display systems is discussed. While several new technologies and manufacturing approaches to microdisplays have been proposed and demonstrated in the display industry, a number of significant challenges related to cost and complexity of fabricating very dense integrated matrix displays are observed. Factors relating to the choice of a MEMS-based scanned beam approach are presented with special emphasis on the economics of silicon processing and light valve manufacturing. Related imaging applications for the high-precision scanning capabilities of the MEMS scanner are described.
