There are many potential applications for MEMS micromirror devices for femtosecond pulse shaping applications. Their broadband reflectivity gives them an advantage in comparison to devices such as liquid crystal- and acousto-optical modulators because of the possibility to directly shape UV pulses in the range 250-400 nm, and thus address UV-absorbing molecules. The identification and discrimination of biomolecules which exhibit almost the same spectra has sparked some interest in the last years as it allows real-time, environmental and optical monitoring. Here, we present the last developments using the Fraunhofer IPMS MEMS phase former capable of accomplishing such goals.
