Paper Abstract

The GRIN lens is widely used in optical communication and imaging systems. Its array can be used to design integrated optic imaging system, especially for hexagonal GRIN. In this paper, the analytic solution of refractive-index distribution of regularly hexagonal GRIN was obtained by separating variables and transforming coordinate. Having been simulated and compared, the correctness of this analytic solution was proved qualitatively and quantitatively. It has great benefit for further research of regular hexagonal GRIN lens and compound eye imaging system. Furthermore, a universal solution of the refractive-index distribution of a regular N-gon (N is even) lens was obtained by this method.
