Paper Abstract

Through advances in semiconductor miniaturization technology microrelief patterns with characteristic dimensions as small as the wavelength of light can now be mass reproduced to form high-quality and low-cost optical components. In a unique example of technology transfer from electronics to optics this capability is allowing optics designers to create innovative optical components that promise to solve key problems in optical sensors optical communication channels and optical processors.
