Paper Abstract

Various techniques for potential low-cost fabrication of integrated optical devices by hot embossing into polymers are presented. Their advantages and disadvantages concerning fabrication restrictions and thermal properties of final devices are discussed. For two polymers, the long-term dimensional stability of embossed microstructures is investigated. The results show the suitability of this promising low-cost replication technique for practical applications.
