Integrated polymer microprisms for free space optical beam deflecting
MetadataShow full item record
We demonstrate beam deflection and multiple channel communication in free space optical communications using microprisms integrated directly onto an array of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs). The design and fabrication of such a transmitter is presented, and shown to achieve beam deflection of up to 10 in a planar configuration. A location discovery application, for use within a distributed network, is put forward and analysed. (c) 2009 Optical Society of America
