Paper Abstract

Fabricating photonic structures directly on the edge of an optical fiber opens opportunities in telecommunication, sensing, lab-on-fiber and as a replacement for the conventional free-space optics. The main advantages are long-term stability, compact size, ease of use, and the scalability. We report a novel method to fabricate 3D free-form photonic structures directly on the optical fiber using Nanoimprint Lithography. A series of “photonic-on-a-fiber” devices are presented including; high-refractive index Fresnel lensed fiber, vortex phase plate on a fiber, beam shaper, and a diffractive beam splitter on a fiber. Innovative fiber photonics devices enable cost-effective and simple wavefront manipulation.
