Micro-optics packaging provides a practical and cost-effective approach for controlling the spatial field distributions of structured laser beams in a variety of photonics applications. Structured laser beams (SLBs) are playing an increasingly important role in ultrahigh resolution microscopy, biophotonics, optical micromanipulation and trapping, laser pumping, materials processing and microfabrication, quantum information, and optical communications. It is shown that the limited aperture sizes, as well as the distortions introduced by micro-optics components during the integration phase, may influence field formation of the structured laser beams, and may alter their spatial characteristics. To avoid the undesirable changes to the field shape of the structured beams during micro-optics design and packaging phases, detailed analysis of the beam propagation characteristics along the optical path is required.
