Abstract

Fabrication of micro optics for fiber optics applications is a challenge due to their size and the issues associated with alignment of the optics to single-mode fibers. This study summarizes a method for fabricating diffractive optical elements on the ends of coreless fiber segments for passive alignment to single-mode fibers. Results are presented for passively aligned diffractive lens elements used for both collimation and beam shaping.
