Abstract

A new polarization-independent and fast-response adaptive microlens array using a polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystal is proposed. With a curved top electrode and planar bottom electrode, gradient electric fields are generated and lens-like phase profile obtained. Optimization process leads to an ideal parabolic phase profile for suppressing spherical aberration. (C) 2011 Optical Society of America
