Abstract

A new simple and cost-effective method has been developed for the fabrication of both plano-convex and plano-concave lens arrays with potentially important sag heights. The process is based on the use of potassium bromide (KBr) powder. At ambient temperature and under pressure, KBr powder is compressed on a molding die with the desired shape to form a solid lens array. The quality of the lens arrays has been assessed, and we present the first image produced by a converging KBr lens array.
