Paper Abstract

Collimating and diverging cylindrical micro lenses with N.A. up to 0.60 fabricated by thermal silver ion exchange in a special designed glass type are reported. Cylindrical microlens arrays are fabricated by field assisted ion-exchange. Applications to fiber coupling as well as to diode bar collimation are discussed.
