Title: IMAGE CONCENTRATOR GRIN LENS SYSTEM
Abstract:
A gradient index (GRIN) lens system includes: a first GRIN lens having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface for refracting, in a first plane, incident light beams having an aspect ratio of x/y from an object from the first surface towards the second surface, the refracted incident light beams having an aspect ratio of x1/y; and a second GRIN lens having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface for refracting, in a second plane, the refracted incident light beams from the first GR!N lens towards the second surface of the second GRIN lens to form a refracted image of the object with an aspect ratio of x1/y1.
