A new novel fabrication method for lensed-fiber has been proposed utilizing UV-curable fluorinated acrylate polymer. The structure is composed of three segments; single modefiber, coreless fiber and polymer lens-tip. Flexible control of the curvature-radius of lens-tip was realized using the polymer surface tension and free space interconnection performances are reported.
