Abstract
An axial gradient index singlet collimator lens for use in the compact disk system has been designed and successfully fabricated. Cost and manufacturing constraints have led to a plano-convex design with the axial gradient index profile symmetric about the plane, perpendicular to the optical axis, passing through the center of the lens. Diffraction limited performance has been obtained in the collimator singlet.
