Adjustable optics are used in a range of fields, such as eyewear, astronomy and machine vision. New and interesting applications in AR/VR and mobile phone cameras are currently being explored.
Fluid lens technology is one approach to creating adjustable optics. The challenges in designing and engineering fluid lenses include achieving high optical quality, providing compact actuation and optimising dynamic response.
In this webinar, Andrew Herbert, FEA principal engineer at Adlens Ltd, will explain how the COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used in the development of adjustable fluid lenses at Adlens.
The webinar will describe the concept of round and nonround fluid lens technology, which may not be familiar to participants.
The basic quasistatic modelling of fluid lenses in COMSOL Multiphysics® will be described as well as methods used for optical postprocessing both within COMSOL Multiphysics® and by coupling to other software.
The application will then be extended into the field of multiphysics using fluid coupling to model the dynamic response of fluid lenses.
The presentation will be illustrated with live examples using COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Note that COMSOL will follow up with all registrants about this event and any related questions.
