  • Publication number: 20090027767
    Abstract: A novel method makes it possible to form cavities intended to contain a liquid with determined optical properties within a film for optical use. The walls (38) of the cavities (40) are formed by plasma etching of a layer of transparent or light absorbent material (30, 34) transferred onto a microtechnological substrate, the walls (38) having a structured profile in order to limit the parasitic phenomena of light diffusion and diffraction.

  • Publication number: 20080213539
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of maintaining the optimal properties of a thin film getter (10) in a cavity (8) of a microelectronic device (1), consisting in coating the getter film (10) with a protective film (12) and installing a reaction element (14). According to the invention, an increase in temperature, while the cavity (8) may be placed under vacuum, causes the protective film (12) to react with the reaction element (14), such that the protective material (12) moves towards the reaction element (14) and releases the getter film of getter material (10).

  • Publication number: 20080170298
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device (22) comprising a first layer of material (10), a second layer of material (20) and walls (14) defining tight cavities (16) between the first and second layers of material, at least partially filled with a fluid (18), blocks (50, 60) rigidly connected to the first layer of material (10), and defining a housing (500) filled at least partially (V) of the material of the second layer (20). According to the invention, the housings (500) of the blocks each form an adhesion point of a sealing material (20) of the cavities (16).

  • Patent number: 7349603
    Abstract: Optical arrangement comprising two parallel plates each with a through-hole forming an optical input/output with a given optical axis and one at least partly optical component placed between the plates, the component and the first plate comprising first fastening studs placed transversely in opposite relationship of the plate and connected by first bumps made of a meltable material that when molten is able to selectively wet these first fastening studs in order to optically align the component and the input/output on the first plate, and the two plates comprising second fastening studs placed transversely in opposite relationship of the plate and connected by second bumps made of a meltable material that when molten is able to selectively wet the second fastening studs in order to optically align the inputs/outputs of the two plates.

  • Patent number: 7031578
    Abstract: Given a component comprising at least one active area formed on a substrate and designed to be coupled to a light guide, a support is used, at least one hole is formed in the support starting from one face of this support, this hole being designed to receive one end of the guide, the substrate is fixed to the other face of the support by forming the hole facing the active area if the active area has already been formed, and otherwise it is formed on the substrate facing the hole and the end of the guide is placed in the hole. The optical system is obtained by optically coupling two devices thus obtained.
