Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Using the methods of photoresist reflow and moulding, bifocal and negative microlens arrays, with diameters down to 10 μm, have been fabricated in GaN-on-sapphire. The optical properties of these microlens arrays were characterised by a recently developed reflection/transmission confocal microscopy technique and agree well with calculated values.
