Abstract

A microlens of numerical aperture (NA) 0.85 a small-form-factor optical pickup, following the specifications of the Blu-ray disc (BD), was designed, fabricated and evaluated. To avoid difficulties in the fabrication of a high-NA objective lens and to obtain a low chromatic aberration, a new hybrid lens unit was designed to have a refractive lens and a diffractive lens. The micro-plano-aspheric refractive lens was fabricated using glass molding technology, and the diffractive lens was fabricated in a two-dimensional array using the electron beam mastering and consecutive UV embossing process. For the evaluation of the developed lens unit, diffraction efficiency was measured with the proposed diffraction efficiency measurement method, and the wavefront error of the lens unit was evaluated using a modified Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The measured average efficiency of the diffractive lens was approximately 85% and the RMS wavefront error of the lens unit was 0.0376 λrms.
