New variable focal liquid lens system using antagonistic-type SMA actuator

Abstract

This paper presents a new variable focal liquid lens system that uses a SMA(shape memory alloy) actuator. Making a conventional variable focal liquid lens system small and light is difficult, due to the requirement of a large and heavy actuator, such as a pump or an electric motor, to distribute the liquid in the liquid lens. Plus, focal control is also… (More)
