Abstract
We have characterized the performance of high quality micro- jetted microlenses with diameters ranging between 109 microns and 400 microns, with focal lengths ranging between 135 microns and 540 microns. We have found that single drop 109-micron diameter microlenses perform close to their diffraction limit. However, the larger lenses, made with multiple droplets show rapid increase in spherical aberration as the diameter of a lens increases.
