  • Other projectors overlay red, green, and blue light, pixel by pixel and in rapid sequence, with a digital micromirror guiding the beams of light. - latest science and technology news stories

  • LaserVue, made by Mitsubishi, uses red, blue, and green lasers and a micromirror device that combines and directs the light.

  • "We built the first truly monolithic micromirror technology that could be manufactured in a conventional wafer fab with materials that were already there, on machines that we already there."

    The Register

  • By reflecting light off their micromirror array - each mirror corresponding to a different pixel - Hornbeck and Co. could selectively charge and discharge the photo-conductor coated on a print drum.

    The Register

  • "It evolved into this effort to develop a micromirror device that could be integrated directly onto a silicon chip using conventional manufacturing techniques," he tells

    The Register

  • At the heart of this single pixel camera is the Texas Instruments-manufactured digital micromirror device (DMD), that replaces a traditional CCD array.

  • The prototype consists of two off-the-shelf lenses, a photodiode, and a micromirror array worth hundreds of dollars made by Texas Instruments, the official sponsor of the project.

  • As an alternative to traditional CCD or CMOS sensor designs, the single pixel camera uses a micromirror array and a process of compressive sensing.
