Paper Abstract

A wide variety of integration strategies for micro-optical systems have been employed. Here we review some of these and comment on their relative strengths and weaknesses. In particular we compare approaches that are based on monolithic fabrication with those that make use of discrete components. As applications we consider free-space optical interconnects, telecommunications optical space switches and radiation mode interconnects for optical waveguides.
