Paper Abstract

The need for low cost micro optical devices is increasing thru all application fields like tele- and data-communication, industrial automation, displays, automobile, sensor applications etc. Polymer technologies can follow this demand due to the possibility of mass fabrication by replication techniques. Various technologies have been developed in the past to fulfill the demanding requests given by the use of micro structures in optical applications. Part of them are already used in industrial manufacturing. Also demanding products are introduced into the market. In the paper we will give an overview of the relevant techniques and demonstrate their possibilities by a few product examples.
