Paper Abstract

Micro-optical elements such as lens, array and diffraction grating are key devices in optical communication, signal processing, neural network and image processing. Thus far, there are several schemes to realize these micro-elements with glass material, e.g., casting with micro structured mold, shrinking effect of photo-sensitive glass and graded index caused by selective diffusion of metallic ions. However, those elements made of glass have some disadvantages, in mass producibility, flexibility, difficulty for making film, heavy weight and cost. In order to overcome these problems it is quite recommended to adopt organic polymer for micro optical elements.1)
