Paper Abstract

Microlenses can be made by refractive and diffractive optics. A tailored distribution of light creates, in exposed photoresist, a three dimensional pattern, which is then reproduced by ion beam etching in the substrate, resulting in the desired microlens. The first technique uses a Fraunhofer diffraction pattern of a hole in the focal plane of a lens. The second technique uses diffractive optics, i.e. a Dammann grating, to generate a uniform array of equally spaced beams. The theoretical background of a Dammann grating and the experimental results are presented.
