Abstract

Arrays of submillimeter microlenses are made from droplets of UV-curable optical adhesive dispensed from a pressurized syringe under computer control. Measurements of the focal length uniformity, the minimum focused spot size, and the spherical aberration are presented. An excellent lens diameter and focal length uniformity are achieved over 100 element arrays.
