Abstract

A recent improvement of a 2-D array of distributed-index (DI) planar microlenses is presented to demonstrate a 2-D integrated optical component using a planar microlens array. These components are made by stacking planar microlens arrays and other planar optical devices. The improved planar microlens has f = 2.0 mm, a N.A. = 0.23, and its spherical aberration is very small. A fiber coupler is demonstrated. From a preliminary experiment, it is shown that the coupling loss of each channel is <0.5 dB for coupling 50-μm core DI fibers.
