Abstract

Two design approaches (multicell and addition of phase resets in single cell) are introduced to optimize the performances of tunable refractive liquid crystal lenses, including improvements on the switching speed, optical power, and the off-axis, wide-angle imaging performance. Key parameters and advantages for each method are discussed, and their effects on the performance are demonstrated in detail with numerical calculations.
