An image processing system was used to evaluate optical waveguide lens performance. The focal length, the focal spot size, and the efficiency of geodesic lenses formed on ion-exchanged waveguides were measured nondestructively, and beams propagating along the curved guiding surface of the waveguide lens were observed.
