A microlens illuminated aperture array (MLIAA) was designed for the multiprobe optical read only memory card system. As a method to integrate the microlens array (MLA) with the aperture array containing 1000×1000 apertures, an aligned ultraviolet imprinting process was used to satisfy the system objectives of reduced focal length and reduced spot size. An analysis using diffraction theory was performed to obtain the design tolerances for both MLIAA and the imprinting process. The maximum intensity of the optical probes at the Talbot [Philos. Mag. 9, 401 (1836)] position from the fabricated MLIAA was 12 times higher than that from the aperture array without a MLA.
