Abstract
A new integrated device for coupling light into waveguides or deflecting and focusing the light from waveguide elements is proposed. The device shows flexible design possibilities and compact dimensions. It consists of a combination of a refractive cylindrical microlens and an integrated planar Fresnel zone lens. High coupling efficiencies can be expected by approaching a kinoform profile with multiphase steps. The Fresnel zone lenses and the cylindrical microlenses were fabricated by thin film deposition of SiOx-multilayers. The measured spot-sizes of the fabricated microlenses are close to the diffraction limited values. A theoretical analysis of coupling tolerances indicates that integrated planar Fresnel zone lens couplers will be useful for optical free space interconnects.
