Paper Abstract

The increasing demand of complex micro-optical products such as Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE) requires the development of new optical material processing micro- techniques especially for small-series production. Diamond turning machining is considered an ideal, mature production tool of DOE in ductile materials but not brittle ones. However, the progress in optical material UV-laser machining is proving to be a good candidate for the micro-structuring of glasses. Thus, by using this emergent UV-laser machining technique, DOE prototypes in C2036 have been made and show promising results.
