Abstract

Divergent microlenses and low-spatial-frequency interference gratings have been fabricated in low-cost silicone layers. The size of the microlenses ranges from 1 m m to 100 μ m while spatial frequencies of interference gratings range from 4 to 18   l / mm . The fabrication method involves the recording of spatial distributions of mid-IR light. At recording time silicone layers are in a gel state. Then layers are cured by heat. The final silicone layers are transparent and rigid.
