Pint-sized spectrometers harness MEMS

The pint-sized MEMS-based spectrometers it was showing came in two sizes--small and tiny. The larger model, about the third the size of a shoebox (compared with laboratory spectrometers the size of a suitcase) uses MEMS optical inference filters to cover a wide range of wavelengths--from 3-to-11 microns wavelength--using silicon wafer processing. The full width / half maximum (FWHW) bandwidth reached down to the nano-scale 50-to-200 nanometers, depending on the interference order used.
