    Research outputpeer-review


    We discuss on-going reliability studies of micro-optical components and assemblies as conducted in the EU FP6 Network of Excellence on Micro-Optics "NEMO". We focus on three case studies including first biaxial fatigue testing of micro-optical components, second reliability testing and quality control of MEMS and third micro-interferometric tomography for measuring optical fibre refractive index changes. For each of these case studies we discuss the dedicated measurement and characterization methods as well as first results and the perspectives for future research.
