For the fabrication of planar-integrated free-space optical (PIFSO) systems binary or analog lithography-based techniques can be used. The optimal choice or combination depends on system parameters like the targeted functionality, efficiency, reliability, and production cost. Our discussion is based on theoretical and experimental work in the field of optical interconnects.
