Paper Abstract

Lenses with variable focus may find extensive applications in industrial production of optical devices. The variable-focus lenses considered in this work may be used most efficiently in laser systems wherein the radiation initially has linear polarization. Consideration is being given to the principles of operation of switchable lenses. The aberration of such lenses is analyzed, the data on control elements having a large angular aperture are presented, and a practical example of a variable-focus lens is given.
