The trend in the development of single-point spectrometric sensors is miniaturization, cost reduction and increase of functionality and versatility. MEMS Fabry-Perot interferometers (FPI) have been proven to meet many of these requirements in the form of miniaturized spectrometer modules and tuneable light sources. Recent development of MEMS FPI devices based on ALD thin film structures potentially addresses all of these main trends. In this paper we present a device and first measurement results of a small imaging spectrometer utilizing a 1.5 mm tuneable MEMS FPI filter working in the visible range of 430-580 nm. The construction of the instrument and the properties of the tuneable filter are explained especially from imaging requirements point of view.
