Paper Abstract

Microlenses, microlens arrays and diffraction gratings can be made by using polymer materials. These elements can work with mid-infrared light. The influence of some fabrication process variables in the fmal parameters of the elements is analyzed. The surface shapes of the fabricated elements were investigated by a surface analyzer and an interference microscope. The ability of microlenses to focus mid-infrared light and to form infrared images and a diffraction efficiency study of the gratings are shown.
