There are many applications for micro-optics. Perhaps the most exciting use of micro-optics is in fiber optical communication systems, getting the light signals in and out of the fibers. Other possible uses include data processing, chemical sensing, and spectroscopic applications. In this talk we will describe μChemLab (TM), the Polychromator, a new spectroscopic gas identification device, a fiberoptic status monitor, and a deep X-ray lithographic technique for fabricating micro-optical systems.
