Fiber Optic Ball Lens A micro-sphere lens is to be used to focus light emitted from a multimode Fber. This Fber optic ball lens is placed against the end of the Fber. The refractive index of the lens is n and the radius of the lens is R . The surrounding medium is air. This lens is shown in the Fgure below. ±or a ray at a height h above the axis, write a set of N equations based on ex- act geometrical optics ray tracing that contain N unknowns that can be solved for the focal distance f as a function of h . Do not use the paraxial ray approximation. The N unknowns should be quantities such as angles of incidence and refraction. Put your N equations in the spaces provided below. Underline once, each of the N unknowns. Use as many spaces as needed or use additional spaces as necessary.
