Bicomponent composite material mixture and single beam photo polymerization method are used to create a micro lens with W -like distribution of refractive index; the flat analogy of the “Schmidt” lens. The choice of two key components of the mixture, which change their mutual miscibility after the photo polymerization of one of them, allows the creation of stable spatial modulation of the refractive index.
