Paper Abstract

An analysis of the light focusing and collimation properties through an inhomogeneous planar optical waveguide whose refractive index profile is given by a hyperbolic secant function is presented from a geometrical point of view. Likewise, a light collimator for a point source and a light deflector for tilted plane illumination are designed.
