This paper describes contributions to the CMBpol Technology Study Workshop concerning optical coupling structures. These are structures in or near the focal plane which convert the free space wave to a superconducting microstrip on a SI wafer, or to the waveguide input to a HEMT receiver. In addition to an introduction and conclusions by the editor, this paper includes independent contributions by Bock on Planar Antenna-Coupled Bolometers for CMB Polarimetry, by Gunderson and Wollack on Millimeter-Wave Platlet Feeds, and by Lee on Multi-band Dual-Polarization Lens-coupled Planar Antennas for Bolometric CMB polarimetry.
