Abstract

Use of complex ray theory in the design of optical devices with a thick lens is presented. As a thick lens consists of convex and concave interfaces, the transmission characteristics of an optical beam through a curved dielectric interface is investigated using complex ray theory and the mode expansion method. As an example, this procedure is applied to the design of a laser diode module with a spherical lens.
