Gradient-index axicon lenses: a quasi-geometrical study

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Unconventional imaging and focusing properties are obtained when odd powers of the radial coordinate are present in a radial gradient-index profile. We calculate the transmittance function for this kind of medium under a paraxial approximation by a quasi-geometrical approach. Likewise, we analyze the pupil effect; that is, we evaluate the intensity distribution diffracted by a gradient-index axicon at the image plane.
