Aplanatic lenses revisited: The full landscape

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

15 Scopus citations


The full scope of solutions for dual-contour aplanatic lenses that can approach the basic limit for radiation transfer are identified, analyzed, and illustrated. Complementary solutions are shown to yield lenses that are either monolithic or have two refractive contours separated by an air gap. The performance of a promising representative design for LED collimation is presented.
