Paper Abstract

We present a switchable liquid crystal cylindrical lens array fabricated with a combination of a sparse electrode array of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) grown upon a silicon substrate, and a second glass substrate featuring an in-plane switching (IPS) electrode structure. A cylindrical shape of an electric field profile was produced between the MWCNT substrate and the IPS substrate. This cylindrical shape was controlled by the application of an external electric field. The average focal lengths at different voltages were calculated. This adaptive lenticular lens array can be used in autostereoscopic displays.
