Near-Diffraction-Limited and Low-Haze Electro-Optical Tunable Liquid Crystal Lens With Floating ElectrodesOptics Express (2013)
AbstractA near-diffraction-limited, low-haze and tunable liquid crystal (LC) lens is presented. Building on an understanding of the key factors that have limited the performance of lenses based on liquid crystals, we show a simple design whose optical quality is similar to a high quality glass lens. It uses 'floating' electrodes to provide a smooth, controllable applied potential profile across the aperture to manage the phase profile.
