Title: A Cylindrical Microlens With An Internally Reflective Surface And A Method Of Fabrication

Abstract

A fast (high numerical aperture) cylindrical microlens, which includes an internally reflective surface, that functions to deviate the direction of the light that enters the lens from its original propagation direction is employed in optically conditioning laser diodes, laser diode arrays and laser diode bars.
