Electrostatically actuated MEMS mirrors for focus control have been fabricated. Deflection over 7.3 µm, which corresponds to 67% of the air gap and a focal length of 154 mm, has been achieved using closed-loop control. Low-order aberrations have been corrected and the devices have been utilized in a simple imaging system.
