Paper Abstract

We discuss the evaluation and design of wide-field-angle acircular lens systems in anisotropic planar waveguides. After a short summary of the applied ray and wave optical relations, we examine the aberrations of systems that were optimized for an isotropic waveguide but are embedded in an anisotropic one. We show that effects of anisotropy must be taken into account in the design of wide-field-lens systems. We present a four-element acircular lens that was optimized using a merit function computed for uniaxially anisotropic media.
