MicroOptics is the trend in the miniaturization and integration of bulk optical elements. The main effort has been in the fabrication of refractive reflective and diffractive structures. Instead, we want to explore micro-optics that affect the polarization of light and integrate them on different devices, in particular, optical fibers.
