Combinational system of a truncated ball lens and a hyperbolic lens for collimating a highly divergent source

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We propose the use of a truncated ball lens in a collimating system to transform a spherical wave from a highly divergent source into a plane wave. The proposed scheme, which incorporates a hyperbolic lens, is discussed, and the overall system is found to have a large acceptance angle and to be free of spherical aberration. Diffraction and polarization effects are neglected, as well as skew rays.
