Previously, we have established hole-patterned liquid crystal (LC) lens consisted of a floating ring electrode (FRE LC lens). However, while the applied voltage is given across the FRE LC lens, the disclination lines are induced as conventional hole-patterned LC lens, degrading the lens quality. To avoid the appearrance of disclination lines, the polymer stabilization is adopted to construct the FRE LC lens. The polymer stabilized FRE LC lens not only excludes the occurrence of the disclination lines during applied voltages but also preserves optical properties similar to the ordinary FRE LC lens.
