Abstract
Microtechnology offers the possibility to fabricate photonic devices. Especially the LIGA technique allows the fabrication of micro-optical benches for free-space optical set-ups, with mounts for inserting hybrid components structured to micrometer accuracy well aligned to each other. These optical benches are not only used to build up passive optical devices but also opto-mechanical systems have been realized. Also concepts to integrate active optical components like laser and photo diodes have been tested. In the paper the concept and the technology to fabricate hybrid micro-optical systems is described. Two systems, a bi-directional transceiver module and an opto- mechanical by pass switch have been fabricated and evaluated. Their performance data prove the ability of the concept of micro-optical functioning modules based on free- space micro-optical systems fabricated by LIGA technique and assembly.
