Paper Abstract

Recently in the micro-optical engineering area has been a grown in use of tunable liquid lenses because this lenses us allow versatility in the focusing range, also an easy handling and implementation. In the literature, many tunable lens models have been reported, but most of this work has been on describing the optical quality of the images, the opto-mechanical analysis is neglected. In this paper, an analysis of opto-mechanical of a tunable liquid lens is presented, for this; we show a finite element simulation of mechanical behavior and estimate how this influences in the optical performance of the lens. The liquid lens is composed of two elastic transparent membranes and of a cylindrical metallic mount.
