Editorial Reviews

Review

“The description of each is very thorough and well-referenced. Ren and Wu have made liberal use of diagrams and images, making the book easy to understand. Readers will find it stimulating and informative.”  (Optics & Photonics News, 1 February 2013)



 

From the Back Cover

Presents readers with the basic science, technology, and applications for every type of adaptive lens

An adaptive lens is a lens whose shape has been changed to a different focal length by an external stimulus such as pressure, electric field, magnetic field, or temperature. Introduction to Adaptive Lenses is the first book ever to address all of the fundamental operation principles, device characteristics, and potential applications of various types of adaptive lenses.

This comprehensive book covers basic material properties, device structures and performance, image processing and zooming, optical communications, and biomedical imaging. Readers will find homework problems and solutions included at the end of each chapter—and based on the described device structures, they will have the knowledge to fabricate adaptive lenses for practical applications or develop new adaptive devices or concepts for advanced investigation.

Introduction to Adaptive Lenses includes chapters on:

  • Optical lenses

  • Elastomeric membrane lenses

  • Electro-wetting lenses

  • Dielectrophoretic lenses

  • Mechanical-wetting lenses

  • Liquid crystal lenses

This is an important reference for optical engineers, research scientists, graduate students, and undergraduate seniors.

Format: Hardcover
Prof. Shin-Tson Wu and Prof. Hongwen Ren are very famous in the researches of liquid lenses and liquid crystal lenses. They finally published a book! In this book, the first chapter introduces the fundamental concepts of adaptive lenses. It is very easy for the undergraduate students to understand the basic concepts and go to the rest of chapters for different kinds of adaptive lenses. The readers can even be inspired and design or propose new adaptive lenses! The references are complete! I highly recommend this book! It's really a great book for understanding adaptive lenses!
