ABSTRACT
A new type of electrically controlled liquid-crystal microlens matrix (EC-LCMM) with a nested electrode array for efficiently tuning and swinging focus, which means that the focus position can be adjusted in three dimensions, is proposed. The EC-LCMM is constructed by a 10 × 10 arrayed annular-sector-shaped aluminum electrode with a central microhole of 140µm diameter and three annular-sectors of 210µm external diameter and the period length of 280µm. To the arrangement of the patterned electrode, both the 10 × 10 LC microlens array based on the annular-sector-shaped aluminum electrode and the 9 × 9 LC microlens array based on an arrayed quasi-quadrilateral-ring-shaped electrode can be obtained. The 9 × 9 LC microlens array is formed by matching adjacent four annular-sector-shaped sub-electrodes in the 10 × 10 LC microlenses. The developed EC-LCMM can be used to electrically tune focus along the optical axis and also swing focus over a focal plane selected. The typical performances include: electrically tunable focusing in a driving voltage range of 3~7Vrms, the focal length in a range of 2~0.6mm, and the maximum focus swing distance being 16µm. For effectively describing the focus swing efficiency, the parameters of SF and SA are defined, which are the ratios between the focus swinging distance and the current focal length along the optical axis, and between the focus swinging extent and the external diameter of a single annular-sector-shaped aluminum electrode, respectively. The SF and SA of the EC-LCMM are ~16‰ and ~7.6%, respectively. It can be expected that the complex wavefront can be more efficiently measured and adjusted according to the EC-LCMM-based Shack-Hartmann wavefront measuring and adjusting architecture.
