1. A method of assembling optoelectronic and/or photonic components, said method comprising:

  • (i) providing at least two optoelectronic and/or photonic components;

    (ii) aligning and situating said optoelectronic and/or photonic components relative to one another and in close proximity with one another so as to;

    (a) provide optical coupling between said components which is enabled by an optical path between adjacent components; and

    (b) maintain the distance d between the adjacent parts of said components, where 0 μ



    100 μ


    (iii) adhering said components to one another with adhesive by (a) applying said adhesive at a periphery of a boundary between said components and not in the optical path between components, and (b) curing or solidifying said adhesive while maintaining optical coupling therebetween; and

    (iv) laser welding said components together while maintaining optical coupling therebetween.
