  • Publication number: 20190227421
    Abstract: An optical device includes a first plate having a first transparent region defining an exit face of the device, and a second plate having a second transparent region defining an entrance face of the device. At least one lens is formed over at least one of the first and second transparent regions. First and second planar reflectors are spaced apart and fixed between the first and second plates in mutually-parallel orientations diagonal to the first and second plates, thereby defining an optical path through the device from the entrance face, reflecting from the first and second reflectors, through the exit face and passing through the at least one refractive surface.

  • Publication number: 20190171030
    Abstract: A method for producing an optical apparatus includes providing a pair of glass wafers. One or more diffractive optical elements (DOEs) are formed on one or more of the glass wafers. A spacer is positioned between the glass wafers so as to define a cavity containing the DOEs, and a hermetic seal that bonds the glass wafers together and seals the cavity is formed.

  • Patent number: 10249673
    Abstract: A microelectronic unit includes a semiconductor element having a front surface to which a packaging layer is attached, and a rear surface remote from the front surface. The element includes a light detector including a plurality of light detector element arranged in an array disposed adjacent to the front surface and arranged to receive light through the rear surface. The semiconductor element also includes an electrically conductive contact at the front surface connected to the light detector. The conductive contact includes a thin region and a thicker region which is thicker than the thin region. A conductive interconnect extends through the packaging layer to the thin region of the conductive contact, and a portion of the conductive interconnect is exposed at a surface of the microelectronic unit.

  • Patent number: 10008325
    Abstract: Manufacturing techniques for producing thin magnetic elements are designed to accommodate the mechanical properties of sintered magnetic substrates. One of the manufacturing processes involves cutting a magnetizable substrate into a number of slices and adhesively coupling the slices to a sheet that can take the form of a layer of grinding tape. After concurrently grinding a first surface of each of the slices, the slices are flipped over so that the first surface of each slice is attached to another layer of grinding tape. A second surface of each of the slices is then ground until a desired thickness is achieved. Subsequent to the grinding, dicing operations can be applied to the slices to produce magnets having a desired length and width.

  • Publication number: 20170090294
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing includes forming on a surface of a metal master a pattern that defines an array of diffractive optical elements (DOEs). The pattern is replicated from the metal master onto a layer of a curable polymer that is deposited over a transparent substrate. The polymer in which the pattern has been replicated is cured, thereby setting the DOEs in the polymer. The transparent substrate is diced so as to singulate the DOEs.
