Abstract
We propose a technique that employs single fluorescent molecules for visualizing the distribution of strain induced in microstructures. We sprayed single-molecule tracers on microstructures by ultrasonic atomization and traced the position and orientation of the tracers by a single-molecule detection technique with a three-dimensional (3D) orientation microscope, which consists of a conventional fluorescent microscope and a polarization-mode converter. By using 3D spline interpolation, we visualized the surface geometry of a microelectromechanical (MEMS) device. We tracked the 3D position and orientation of tracers attached to a supporting beam of the MEMS mirror. The surface declination angles calculated from the orientation of the tracers were in agreement with the tilt angle obtained from the 3D position of the tracers.
