Abstract

A mask for producing microlenses comprising an opaque layer which has a plurality of openings of different sizes and at different locations which conform to the microlenses to be produced, the mask preferably being formed of an array of subpixels 55 of various grey scale elements 57 (see also Fig 12), the array preferably being 40 x 40. This mask 51 is used to produce microlenses in a single exposure via shutter and lens a silicon chip which is coated with a photoresist which is developed after exposure. The exposure can be repeated by moving the XY stage in either the X or Y directions. <IMAGE>
