We report on the fabrication and characterization of replicated hybrid elements for low-cost micro-spectrometer array applications. An array of hybrid elements, where one surface combines the fairly large dimensions of refractive microlenses with the submicron features of a diffraction grating, was successfully replicated by hot embossing. The parameters are: lens diameter=990 μm, height=60 μm,... Plus

    Summary
    We report on the fabrication and characterization of replicated hybrid elements for low-cost micro-spectrometer array applications. An array of hybrid elements, where one surface combines the fairly large dimensions of refractive microlenses with the submicron features of a diffraction grating, was successfully replicated by hot embossing. The parameters are: lens diameter=990 μm, height=60 μm, grating period=1 μm, linewidth=300 nm and grating depth=2 μm. These replicated spectrometer elements showed a maximum resolution of 2.25 nm and a stray-light suppression better than 30 dB.
