7 March 2008 Light coupling in micro-optic systems: past, present, and trends
Author Affiliations +
Light coupling in micro-optic systems is one of the most important and difficult to implement processes, having major impact on the system performance, and requiring significant investment in design, equipment and tooling, and process know-how. While packaging has a dominant share in cost of electro-optical devices, coupling processes may have the highest impact on the yielded cost of the product. In this paper we present a broad spectrum of coupling schemes and approaches that were developed during evolution of photonics and electro-optical instrumentation. Some recent coupling trends geared towards reduction of production and packaging costs will also be discussed.
