Paper Abstract

Studies on adaptive lenses formed of two transparent elastic surfaces with a transparent liquid medium between them have focused mostly on the characterization, analysis and the optical performance of the proposed lenses. No attention, however, has been given to the mechanical design to generate a user-friendly functional mounting as well as being adaptable to conventional optical systems. This work, therefore, presents the design and manufacturing processes of the parts of the mounting for a biconvex adaptive lens with a 20 mm diameter. It also presents an analysis of the membranes used as elastic surfaces as well as images formation of the proposed lens.
