Paper Abstract

The introduction of the 'hybrid electrode' has proven to successfully simplify both the electrode design and the requirements on the electrical driver of liquid crystal optical devices. In this paper, we present the design and summarize some experimental results with respect to liquid crystal lenses and lens arrays employing the hybrid electrode structure. We further introduce the design of the circular hybrid electrode structure that brought forth, to our knowledge, the first single-layer liquid crystal spherical lens array with quadratic lens apertures.
