Micro-optical components and systems are used in information- and telecommunication technologies, optical storage devices, measuring and analytical instruments. Typical components are fiber couplers/connectors, waveguides, lenses, slits, gratings, and mirrors which can be fabricated in silicon, glass, or polymers. Protron Mikrotechnik uses silicon wet chemical and deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) for the fabrication of micro-optical components. These technologies allow the fabrication of high precision parts combined with a high design flexibility.
