Paper Abstract

A new configuration of three micro-optical elements has been proposed for the realization of miniaturized optical beam deflection and modulation modules: One element with a special surface corrugation profile is placed in the focal plane of two microlenses or microlens arrays, one for focussing the incoming beam(s) and the second for output beam collimation. When the middle element is moved in lateral direction with respect to the optical axis, the parameters of the optical beam(s) is/are influenced depending on the real micro-optic structure. The results of first experiments on optical beam deflection and phase modulation are demonstrated.
