A novel concept of a gradient-index lens array for reduction and enlargement is described. The array is composed of radial gradient-index rod lenses arrayed in a fanlike manner. Design and radiometric equations are presented. Some image aberrations are discussed in a qualitative fashion. The imaging performance and radiometric properties of a sample lens array are given.
