Application of visual servoing in microassembly area is being developed but still limited by small depth of field of optical microscopes. There have been several research efforts to resolve this problem in robotics and optics area, but they are still insufficient to be directly applied. In this paper, the concept of flexible depth of field extension, which is to use an LC-SLM to alleviate the computational cost of the wave-front coding method and obtain the best image for a given defocus of the object, and how to implement the system are explained, and it is applied to a microassembly setup for target detection experiments. The results imply that a good microassembly strategy can be devised for fast and robust performance in micro world.
