Abstract
This paper proposes an optically tunable focal intensity microlens array (MLA) by using a focusing unit with birefringent liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) and a tuning unit with photoalignment for controlling the polarization state of the incident light. Due to the different refractive indices of LCP, it acts as a positive or negative microlens with respect to the polarization state. The resultant tunable focal intensity MLA shows the fast optical switching time without voltage and the multi-stable characteristics.
