Abstract

A very large radial graded-index (GRIN) polymer was successfully prepared for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, by two methods: the curved mold method and the diffusion copolymerization method. Both methods gave a radial GRIN polymer with a diameter of 70 mm and a Δn value greater than 0.02. Ray tracing through these radial GRIN polymers was used to predict that such a GRIN polymer could be a promising candidate for thinner ophthalmic lenses with no spherical aberration or multifocusing characteristics.
