A 4 mm by 5 mm, magnetically actuated scanning MEMS mirror is fabricated by integration of bulk silicon micromachining and magnetic thin film head techniques. Large mirror deflection angles (0 - 70 degree(s)) are achieved. The MEMS mirror is demonstrated as a laser beam scanner in both conventional and compact holographic data storage system configurations.
