Introduction to Adaptive Lenses
Presents readers with the basic science, technology, andapplications for every type of adaptive lens
An adaptive lens is a lens whose shape has been changed to adifferent focal length by an external stimulus such as pressure,electric field, magnetic field, or temperature. Introduction toAdaptive Lenses is the first book ever to address all of thefundamental operation principles, device characteristics, andpotential applications of various types of adaptive lenses.
This comprehensive book covers basic material properties, devicestructures and performance, image processing and zooming, opticalcommunications, and biomedical imaging. Readers will find homeworkproblems and solutions included at the end of eachchapter—and based on the described device structures, theywill have the knowledge to fabricate adaptive lenses for practicalapplications or develop new adaptive devices or concepts foradvanced investigation.
Introduction to Adaptive Lenses includes chapters on:
Elastomeric membrane lenses
Liquid crystal lenses
This is an important reference for optical engineers, researchscientists, graduate students, and undergraduate seniors.
