Full text of article: Russian language.

Mode solutions are obtained in the form of a hyperbolic secant for the two-dimensional gradient medium with the refraction index in the form of the hyperbolic secant too. A photonic crystal (PhC) analog of a cylinder Mikaelian gradient lens is founded, and the comparative numerical simulation of diffraction of a plane wave is conducted on both microlenses with the help of the two-dimensional FDTD-method.

Key words:
2D photonic-crystal lens, Mikaelian gradient lens, microoptics.
