Abstract
High data rates, immunity against electro-magnetical interference and the ability for low-cost mass production are the basic reasons for the replacement of electrical wire networks by their optical equivalents. The highly integrated micro-optical backplane concepts discussed in this paper are based on a combination of guided wave and free space micro- optical elements and are compatible to multi-fiber MT connectors. The required positioning accuracy of the micro- optical elements is guaranteed by the LIGA technique. Monolithic integration in one substrate allows to reduce the degree of freedom for critical alignment.
