Abstract

Use of a gradient-index (GRIN) substrate is proposed as a novel signal-propagation medium for planar optics. The GRIN substrate provides planar optics designers not only a three-dimensional light propagation space but also smart optical diffraction-limited imaging. Experimental results on the imaging of an input signal to multiple destinations by the GRIN planar optics are presented.
