Abstract

In optical applications, there exists a need to align lens blocks to and among substrates. A lens block in this context includes a body with some symmetrical lens having a focal point. A lens block includes, but is not limited to, an optical fiber having a transmissive core as well as a ribbon of a plurality of optical fibers. A substrate to which the lens block may be coupled and precise alignment desired includes, but is not limited to, waveguides and optical transceivers.
