Abstract

We demonstrate micrometer scale mid-IR lenses for integrated optics, using solution-based inkjet printing techniques and subsequent processing. Arsenic sulfide spherical microlenses with diameters of 10 350 μm and focal lengths of 10 700 μm have been fabricated. The baking conditions can be used to tune the precise focal length.
