Abstract
In order to determine the imaging quality of microlenses, a numerical method was developed. This method, which we called Wave Propagation Method (WPM), was derived from the classical Beam Propagation Method (BPM). In comparison to the classical BPM the new method is not restricted to the paraxial region and therefore can be applied also for large angles and large index steps. Different kinds of microlenses were characterized with the WPM and the theoretical properties of various gradient index lenses were analyzed.
