Abstract

An adaptive microlens structure is proposed using two polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid-crystal layers whose Kerr constant is largely mismatched. This device exhibits several favorable features, such as polarization independence, simple structure, and good parabolic phase profile. Its applications for 2D/3D switchable displays and other photonic devices are emphasized.
