Abstract

Planar technology has been used to make a microlens array monolithically. By selectively diffusing a dopant into the planar substrate a distributed-index planar microlens has been realized. The monomer exchange technique for the plastic substrate and ion exchange and electromigration techniques for the glass substrate are used. In particular a 2-D planar microlens array was fabricated in a glass substrate. Each microlens was 1.2 mm in diameter and the focal length was 9.4 mm. The focused spot of the collimated He–Ne laser beam was as small as 17 μmϕ.
