Paper Abstract

Refractive microlenses are fabricated by the P2ROM (Preshaped Photoresist Refractive Optics by Melting) process. A polar coordinate HeCd laser beam lithography system (laser writer) is used to directly expose a continuous spheroidal profile into photoresist to fabricate 200 micrometers diameter microlenses with speeds between F/1.5 and F/5. Interferometric surface measurements, used to determine optical quality of the preshaped microlenses, indicate reduced spherical aberration in slow lenses fabricated by this method.
