Paper Abstract

An aspheric collimating slab waveguide lens is designed using a diverging planar 1-D photonic crystal. An approximation method for analysis of such structures has been developed. A lens design procedure (which minimizes area) is also introduced. For illustration purposes, we use Silicon on insulator technology with the minimum feature size of 100 nm. We show that fast lens with 130 μm focal length, f/# = 1.3 is achievable with an etching area of only 658 μm2.
