Paper Abstract

The use of microfabrication techniques allows one to build integrated free-space optical systems which can be useful for applications in optical computing and switching. This paper gives an overview of the fabrication of diffractive micro-optical elements, their integration using the concept of planar optics and their hybrid integration with gallium arsenide chips. Finally, optical clock distribution and space-variant interconnects based on the use of lenslet arrays are considered as examples for applications of integrated micro-optics.
