Paper Abstract

A discrete zooms optimization based on the genetic algorithm (GA) is presented in this paper, which applies liquid elements and irregular lenses group moving to realize the best resolution for all distinct zooms without any mechanism moving limit. By using GA optimization for discrete zooms lens, the liquid element curvatures and irregular lenses group locations can be effectively looked for, resulting in better performance than that of traditional zoom lens with continuous lens group moving. The simulation results show that the discrete zooms lens with GA optimization gives a better choice than the traditional zoom lens designed by damped least square (DLS).
