Paper Abstract

Solid Optics (SO) is 3D optics without air spaces. In some respects it is a 3D version of Integrated Optics (IO), but it shares many features with Conventional Optics (CO) that IO cannot share. After a general comparison of SO, IO, and CO; we note that for many purposes SO is the best choice. We then discuss general approaches, geometries, and figures of merit for SO systems. The final main topic is a review of the two main types of SO system: linear and right-angle.
