Abstract

A new differential ray tracing (DRT) formulation for optical lenses with gradient-index (GRIN) properties is presented. The metric function gradient required during lens optimization is obtained by DRT, which requires very few function evaluations when compared to the finite difference (FD) approach. Numerical results validating the accuracy of the proposed method are presented.
