NANO-OPTICS: NEW OPTICAL STRUCTURES AND LITHOGRAPHY ENABLE STANDARDIZED MANUFACTURING FOR MULTIPLE COMPONENTS
Company: NanoOpto Corporation
Date Published: 4/1/2003 Volume: 16-2
First, by taking advantage of the physics of the interaction of light with nano-scale structures, a broad range of discrete and integrated optical devices can be created by varying the same fundamental design. Second, these nano-optic devices are readily manufactured in a wafer-based manufacturing environment, drawing heavily on proven semiconductor manufacturing methods. Third, the resulting components have highly desirable properties for assembly and packaging into optical modules and systems, including "pick and place" ready form factors.
This paper describes the attributes of nano-optics, their manufacture, and their use in manufacturing of optical modules. In aggregate, these properties change the rules for optical component manufacture, dramatically slash costs, and open up totally new opportunities.
Key words: optical components, optical networking, nano-optics, nano-imprint manufacturing.
