Title: Planar dielectric cylindrical lens at 800 nm and the role of fabrication imperfections

Abstract

Conventional optical components have been proposed to realize high-quality line focusing with uniform intensity distribution such as cylindrical lenses, segmented wedge-arrays, or a combination of prisms and spherical mirrors. Numerous factors such as the manufacturing tolerances or the need for precise alignment of conventional lenses cause wave front aberrations that impact the performance of optical systems. These aforementioned limitations affect the uniformity of the intensity distribution and the intercept factor of lenses. Here, we experimentally demonstrate an integrable planar dielectric cylindrical lens made of titanium dioxide for uniform line focusing and discuss the sensitivity of its performance to fabrication imperfections originating from non-ideal geometrical parameters. The lens has a numerical aperture of 0.247, an intercept factor of 0.85, and an efficiency of 79% at 800 nm.
