The hydrophilic domains in a hydrophobic background were fabricated by lithographically-patterning an adhesive hydrophobic layer. Organic polymer microlenses were fabricated on the substrates using a dip-coating technique. The performance of arrays of these microlenses was quantitatively analyzed and optimized. At a given dipping angle, increasing monomer viscosity or substrate withdrawal speed, or decreasing the array fill-factor was shown to reduce the f# of formed microlenses.
