Some time ago, R. W. Mandi paid me a visit and asked me to publish the results of a little calculation, which I had made at his request. This note complies with his wish. 
Diffraction of light and lens effect of the stellar gravitation field
The purpose of the present communication is to consider the focussing of light by gravitational ‘lenses’ (stars). Finite estimates of the gainq on the optical axis (r»0) can be obtained with an
Gravitational Lens Effect: An Observational Test
The large proper motion of the nearby star 40 Eridani-A will pass a distant star in 1988. It should be possible to observe the gravitational lens effect of this eclipse by existing photoelectric
Mirages Caused by a Gravitational Lens
Unlike most of the important discoveries reported in astronomy, the physics of gravitational lenses was understood well before their existence was proven. In 1936, Albert Einstein published the
Close-up on gravitational lensing : The gravitational mirages
Among the various manifestations of gravitational lensing, we emphasize the interest of gravitational mirages (defined as situations where several images of a single source are produced).
A Telescope at the Solar Gravitational Lens: Problems and Solutions
Due to the bending of light by gravity, the gravity of sun forms a lens. In principle, a spacecraft sent to the distance of the soalr gravitational focus could be used as a gravitational lens
Gravitational lensing in a black-bounce traversable wormhole spacetime.
In this work, we calculate the deflection angle of light in a spacetime that interpolates between regular black holes and traversable wormholes, depending on the free parameter of the metric.
The brightness of a black hole due to gravitational lensing
The influence of a Schwarzschild black hole on the light from stars is examined. The result is, that due to gravitational lensing light comes from the black hole and thus a black hole ‘shines’. The
So much gain at 550 AU
The gravitational focusing effect of the Sun is one of the most amazing discoveries produced by the general theory of relativity. The first paper in this field was published by Albert Einstein in
Gravitational lensing by black holes in Einsteinian cubic gravity
We investigate the predictions of Einsteinian Cubic Gravity (ECG) for the lensing effects due to supermassive black holes at the center of Milky Way and other galaxies. Working in the context of
