Micro-optics includes a family of optical components that are fabricated by modern micromachining, such as optical lithography, direct laser and e-beam writing, reactive ion etching. The paper presents the development of micro-optics since the introduction of microfabrication techniques. We discuss what we have learned and present recent developments.
