Abstract
Excimer laser ablation is a versatile method to generate three dimensional microstructured devices for mechanics, fluidics and optics. Especially, if in one dimension the structure is predefined by a layer design, and the other two dimensions are defined in the layer ablation process by mask projection, very precise structure definition in three dimensions and ablated surfaces with optical quality can be achieved. Patterning optical layers or layer stacks, a variety of applications is possible. As examples the fabrication of dielectric masks and diffractive optical elements and the performance of these elements in shaping excimer laser beams are demonstrated.
