12 In this work we present a novel optical lens that can be designed to provide any specified angular sensitivity to a receiver, illuminating the sensitive area almost isotropically. This lens, which has been designed in the framework of nonimaging optics, consists in a single dielectric piece that encapsulates the receiver (as conventional epoxy packages of photodiodes), whose interface with air is an aspheric refractive surface. Several trial products have been manufactured with different angular sensitivities (linear response, cos-1(theta) and cos-2(theta) ). The experimental results have shown that the trial devices have the specified angular sensitivity with +/- 5% accuracy.
