A simple design of spatially finite one-dimensional and bidimensional waveguide arrays, showing self-imaging properties, is proposed. Image reconstruction insensitive to array truncation is achieved by the introduction of short waveguide interruptions (waveguide segmentation), which act as a focusing lens for discretized light.

  23. Lumped alternating π phase shifts can also be achieved by a sharp geometric tilt of waveguide axis with a bent angle α=λ/(4nea) (see ). However, the sharp turn point of waveguide axis at z=L/2 introduces high radiation losses.
