Abstract
The structure and some probable limitations of lenses grown into semiconductor lasers or amplifiers are discussed. As an example, an afocal telescope that converts a collimated beam with a width of 20 microns to a collimated beam with a width of 220 microns requires a length of 1.25 mm. Its design uses a transverse structure that is based on previous work but is less conservative as far as reflection and the conversion of light to radiating waves at the lens surfaces.
