  • Patent number: 6864876
    Abstract: A micro-mirror device for an image display apparatus which can change the travel path of incident light by pivoting a mirror, which corresponds to a pixel and can increase optical efficiency by pivoting the mirror in the direction of the sides of the mirror. The micro-mirror device for an image display apparatus includes a substrate, a landing pad provided on the substrate, and a pair of base electrodes provided on opposite sides of the landing pad. A pair of first posts protrude from the upper surface of the landing pad, and are isolated from each other by a predetermined interval. A girder, supported by the pair of first posts, pivots toward the sides of the base electrodes due to an electrostatic attraction. A second post protrudes from the upper surface of the girder. A mirror, which is supported by the second post, reflects incident light, and receives power via the landing pad.
