Abstract

The implementation of gradient-index materials into optical systems requires that a complete set of manufacturing tolerances be calculated. To evaluate systems where the gradient may be tilted, decentered, or displaced, modifications to present ray-trace procedures are developed. Examples of the effect of such manufacturing errors are given.
