Micro-optical elements are ideal components for building compact optoelectronic systems. Typical elements are refractive and diffractive microlenses, Dammann gratings, optimized phase elements, and polarizers. Modern microfabrication technology enables the manufacturing of almost any structure shape including asymmetric aspherics, which provides all degrees of freedom for design. Besides the theoretical background and overview of current technology, system concepts will be discussed. In addition, selected applications will be presented including diffusers for illumination, collimation of high-power laser diode arrays, hybrid (refractive / diffractive) achromats, array generators, Optical MEMS, photonic crystal waveguides. The participants will be introduced in different types of diffractive and refractive micro-optical elements. They will learn about their potential and they will get an idea of the suitable design tools.
R&D physicists, engineers, optical system designers involved in the development of new components and systems.
II. Fabrication and applications
IV. Discussion of design problems
Dr Markus Rossi from Heptagon AG, Zürich (CH). Formerly head of CSEM Zurich Replicated Micro-Optical Elements, Markus became CTO of Heptagon after CSEM's Microoptics division was acquired by Heptagon in 2000. He is an expert on fabricating diffractive and refractive micro-optic components for industrial applications in the European and US markets. Markus holds a Ph.D. from the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland and a master's degree in physics from ETH Zurich.
