Abstract

Mass-transport smoothing has been used to fabricate an array of off-axis gallium-phosphide microlenses for use in an optical interconnection system employing a single macroscopic lens to image an array of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL’s) onto a detector array. Steering the individual VCSEL beams through the center of the relay lens creates an optical system with low distortion.
