Aberrations of GRIN-rod lenses in multimode optical fiber devices.


The aberrations of graded-refractive-index-rod lenses (GRIN-rod lenses) are analyzed, with particular emphasis on the characteristics and parameter ranges of interest for various multimode optical fiber devices. Ray-tracing calculations are used to present a visual display of the image quality of particular lenses, and aberration theories are used to… (More)
