In the work the link between the focusing inhomogeneity of the effective refractive index of waveguide Luneburg lens and the irregularity of the waveguide layer thickness generating this inhomogeneity is demonstrated. For the dispersion relation of irregular thin-film waveguide in the model of adiabatic waveguide modes the problem of mathematical synthesis and computer-aided design of the waveguide layer thickness profile for the Luneburg thin-film generalized waveguide lens with a given focal length is being solved. The calculations are carried out in normalized (in a special way) coordinates to adapt the used relations to computer calculations. The obtained solution is compared with the same solution within the cross-section’s method. The performance of the algorithm implemented in Delphi, was demonstrated by plotting the dispersion curves and plotting a family of dispersion curves, demonstrating a critical convergence. As an additional result, the thickness profiles of additional (irregular in thickness) waveguide layer, forming a thin film generalized waveguide Luneburg lens were synthesized. This result generalizes Southwell’s results.
