Gradient-index lens arrays that make reduced or enlarged images have been invented at Xerox Corp. An important optical property of these lens arrays is their radiometric speed. Thus a general procedure for the radiometric analysis of arbitrary magnification gradient-index lens arrays has been developed. The analysis has been applied to a particular array which was fabricated by Nippon Sheet Glass Co. and tested at Xerox.
