Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The paper discusses the use of microlens arrays. The optical quality of the microlens doublets and afocal pairs is assessed using interferometric analysis. A Mach Zehnder interferometer with fringe analysis software is used to analyse aberrations introduced by the microlenses. The off axis performance is evaluated by changing the angle of the beam at the aperture stop of the bulk lens. Measurements of the performance of the hybrid lenses are also presented including spot sizes and interferograms showing the aberrations introduced into the beam by the hybrid lens.
