Abstract

The fabrication and testing of glass microlenses with rod and spherical shapes are described. The sizes of the lenses range from tens of micrometers to several millimeters. The surfaces of the lenses were fabricated by the melting method. These surfaces have been studied by several methods. The theoretical behavior of the lenses was investigated by ray tracing. Some applications of the lenses are presented.
