Title (EN) FLEXIBLE LIQUID CRYSTAL CELLS AND LENSES
(FR) CELLULES ET LENTILLES À CRISTAUX LIQUIDES FLEXIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) A flexible optical element adopting liquid crystals (LCs) as the materials for realizing electrically tunable optics is foldable. A method for manufacturing the flexible element includes patterned photo-polymerization. The LC optics can include a pair of LC layers with orthogonally aligned LC directors for polarizer-free properties, flexible polymeric alignment layers, flexible substrates, and a module for controlling the electric field. The lens power of the LC optics can be changed by controlling the distribution of electric field across the optical zone.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, un élément optique souple adoptant des cristaux liquides (LC) en tant que matériaux destinés à réaliser une optique électriquement accordable est pliable. Un procédé de fabrication de l'élément flexible comprend la photopolymérisation à motifs. L'optique LC peut comprendre une paire de couches LC ayant des directeurs LC alignés orthogonalement destinés à des propriétés sans polariseur, des couches d'alignement polymères flexibles, des substrats flexibles, et un module servant à commander le champ électrique. La puissance de lentille de l'optique LC peut être modifiée par commande de la distribution de champ électrique à travers la zone optique.
