Abstract

Current analytical expressions between Gradient-Index (GRIN) lens parameters and optical aberrations are limited to paraxial approximations, which are not suitable for realizing GRIN lenses with wide fields of view or small f-numbers. Here, an analytical surrogate model of an arbitrary GRIN lens ray-trace evaluation is formulated using multivariate polynomial regressions to correlate input GRIN lens parameters with output Zernike coefficients, without the need for approximations. The time needed to compute the resulting surrogate model is over one order-of-magnitude faster than traditional ray trace simulations with very little losses in accuracy, which can enable previously infeasible design studies to be completed.
