Abstract

We propose a hole-patterned large aperture (LA) liquid crystal (LC) lens with a diameter of 6 mm. In our design, a floating ring electrode is embedded into the interface between the dielectric layer and the LC layer. This structure increases the electric field strength around the floating ring electrode located near the aperture center and assists in distributing the fringing electric field throughout the LC layer. Therefore, the thick dielectric layer used in the conventional hole-patterned LA LC lens can be effectively decreased. Consequently, the proposed LA LC lens has low operation voltage, large lens power, and introduces a low wavefront error of approximately 0.07 λ.
