We demonstrate a novel method for fabricating glass microlens (arrays) with single step on conventional lens surface. In this method, the glass microlens can be achieved by only one step with sol gel glass material. The microlens aperture and focus length can be controlled easily and uniformly. The fabricated sample shows good focusing property. This work will be useful to improve the performance of compound eyes optical system such as camera, telescope, 3D integral imaging and so on.
