Tunable lenses have become very popular elements due their capacity of change their focal length by only modifying their shape. This characteristic is very useful in different applications in the field of optics. The development of tunable lenses consists on several phases: first, to find a suitable material, second, to obtain an optimal analysis and design, and third, to find the way to change the lens shape and characterization. In this work we present the characterization of a tunable lens, formed by spherical profiled elastic membranes and a liquid medium between them. The proposed liquidfilled tunable has a design such that the spherical aberration is the least to different focus. The development of an optomechanical system to change the lens shape is presented.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
