In this paper, we design microlens arrays for the improvement of the optical power coupling efficiency of 8x8 planar lightwave circuit (PLC) devices. Eight fiber array input and output are considered for integrated packaging with 8x8 PLCs. A variety of core pitches matching are achieved from 25μm to 127μm between integrated optical chips and fiber array. We presented a simple formula, which is useful for microlens arrays design. Our proposed microlens arrays provide versatility in a micro-optics package for optical communication. Our results are helpful for low-cost packaging, monolithic integration optics modularization, and minimization of the optical power coupling loss between fiber array and array module.
