Paper Abstract

Lenses and mirrors of micrometer scale have been fabricated in the InGaAsP/InP heterostructure material. These microoptical components include two-dimensional flat and cylindrical end-mirrors which are a part of edge-emitting laser cavities, integrated 45° beam-deflectors which direct the output beam from edge-emitting lasers to emit perpendicular to the substrate surface, and large-numerical-aperture refractive and diffractive lenses for collimating light from the diode lasers. They were fabricated by etching, using both wet-chemical and dry processes, lithographically defined patterns. In many cases a mass-transport process was also used to smooth the etched structures.
