Abstract

An array of aspheric off-axis GaP microlenses fabricated by mass-transport smoothing is used to eliminate distortion in an optical interconnection system employing a single macroscopic relay lens. The strength of the mass transport technique lies in its ability to generate surfaces with arbitrary figure and exceedingly high surface quality. The design is tolerant to misalignment and to aberrations induced by the microlens array.
