Abstract
One of the big advantages of polymer optics is the possibility of integrating several functions into one component. These functions can range from mechanical reference datums all the way to micro channels in "lab-on-chip" type of applications. In this paper an overview on several design- and manufacturing principles of such integrated components will be given. Furthermore the next steps in the Design - Build - Test cycle will be discussed as well: mold manufacturing, molding and finally metrology.
