In this work, a novel technique to create adaptive liquid crystal lenses and other optical components is proposed and demonstrated. This proposal avoid all of the previous techniques disadvantages, a simple fabrication process and low voltage control is required, and thin lenses can be obtained. The novelty of the proposal, resides in a micro-structured indium tin oxide, designed to transmit the voltage homogeneously across the entire surface of the active area. This design is composed of two main elements, a transmission line that generates a voltage gradient, and a series of combs that distribute the voltage across the entire active area. Two different apertures are designed. One of this designs is fabricated and measured to demonstrate the viability of the idea. This novel structure open new venues of research in phase-only LC optical devices.
