Modeling and Characterization of Adaptive Lanthanum-Modified Lead Zirconate Titanate (PLZT) MicrolensesJournal of Microlithography, Microfabrication, and Microsystems
AbstractWe report the modeling and characterization of adaptive voltage controlled electro-optic microlenses. First, we utilize finite element analysis (FEA) to simulate the induced electro-optic effect in lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate (PLZT). FEA simulation provides microlens parameters such as phase and focal length. A simple z-scan method is developed to fully characterize the adaptive voltage controlled linear lens. Experimental z-scan results are shown to match the theoretical predictions from FEA.
