Abstract

In this work we report, for the first time to our knowledge, the possibility to fabricate various structures, with good optical proprieties, on the top of optical fibers, using the two-photon lithography (TPL) technique. We show the convenience of this approach to quickly create generic 3D shapes using a single set-up by contrast to past shape-dependent methods. A set of different structures are fabricated and characterized to demonstrate the versatility of this approach and their high optical quality.
