Abstract

For an integrated free-space optical interconnection system we suggest the use of microprisms to achieve large coupling angles at low loss. Prisms were fabricated in photoresist and quartz glass by analog lithography. High-energy-beam–sensitive glass was used as the gray-tone mask. Optical testing of the prisms shows acceptable surface quality and high efficiency (95%).
