Abstract

We fabricated a polarization-independent varifocal lens using KTa1xNbxO3 (KTN) crystals. The polarization dependence of the KTN crystal is effectively compensated for by combining a pair of KTN lenses and a half-wave plate. This compensation is achieved by a total electro-optic effect, which consists of the Kerr effect and the elasto-optic effects via the electrostrictive and elastic strains in the KTN crystal.
