A compact and modular optical system that employs gradient-refractive-index rod lenses to image arrays of Lambertian sources is characterized both experimentally and by ray-tracing simulations. A hybrid optical system that incorporates additional microlens arrays to reduce transmittance losses and aberrations is also modeled, and the two systems are compared.
