Paper Abstract

This study presents results obtained from the exact tracing of rays of an adaptive lens, that is, a liquid lens with transparent elastic surfaces. Because the elastics surfaces are deformed by a liquid, they acquire different curvatures depending on the difference in pressures of the liquid and of the environment. Images generated by this type of lens are simulated with a ray-tracing computer program, considering that each surface can be modeled with concentric spherical rings with different curvatures; this is because the elastic coefficients of the plastic materials used are non-linear.
