Paper Abstract

Tunable lenses have attracted much attention due to their potential applications in such areas like machine vision, laser projection, ophthalmology, etc. In this work we present the design of a tunable opto-mechatronic system capable of focusing and to regulate the entrance illumination that mimics the performance made by the iris and the crystalline lens of the human eye. A solid elastic lens made of PDMS has been used in order to mimic the crystalline lens and an automatic diaphragm has been used to mimic the iris of the human eye. Also, a characterization of such system has been performed with standard values of luminosity for the human eye have been taken into account to calibrate and to validate the entrance illumination levels to the overall optical system.
