Paper Abstract

Microprisms play an important role in a number of micro- optical systems for beam shaping and beam deflection. The task of the prisms is to deflect a beam selectively in order to bring it into an other optical channel of the system or to redirect a beam in the way that the redirected beam propagates parallel with respect to the optical axis of subsequent optical elements. We derive general requirements for microprisms for these applications and discuss some experimental results.
