Switchable Fresnel lens based on micropatterned alignment.

Abstract

In this Letter we disclose a method to fabricate a liquid crystal (LC) Fresnel zone lens (FZL) with higher efficiency. The LCFZL, based on alternate twisted nematic (TN) and planar aligned (PA) regions, has been prepared by means of a two-step photo-alignment process. The FZL profile for both optical regimes, i.e., in TN and PA alignment domains, generates… (More)
