During the last decade, the development of additive manufacturing methods has shown great potential in optics and photonics because it offers new degrees of design freedom. Within this context, the authors of this book succeed in presenting a comprehensive summary of the current state of the art.
The book’s content makes it suitable for a large audience, ranging from graduate students in applied optics to engineers who want to learn more about the fabrication of innovative optical components, such as microlenses with complex shapes and macroreflectors.
