Abstract

The advent of quasi-conformal Transformation Optics (qTO) has occurred in conjunction with a renewed interest in gradient-index (GRIN) optics. In fact, the application of qTO on optical design has generated GRIN optics that achieve performance behaviors previously unattainable with traditional GRIN design methodologies. While qTO-derived GRIN solutions have been shown to often possess exotic index variations, recent developments have allowed these solutions to be understood with classical geometrical optics principles. Moreover, by analyzing qTO-derived GRIN lens solutions with a geometrical opticsinspired framework, one can extend the performance of these solutions to achieve designs that better match that of their pretransformation counterparts.
