Abstract
Varifocal imaging using an optical lens that employs acoustic radiation force and a viscoelastic material and that has no mechanical moving parts is investigated. The lens has a simple and thin structure that consists of an annular ultrasonic transducer and silicone gel. An axially symmetric acoustic standing wave can be generated in the gel by exciting a vibration mode in the radial direction on the transducer. The lens profile can be altered by varying the acoustic radiation force of the transducer. The focal length can be controlled by varying the transducer input voltage so that the lens functions as a variable-focus lens.
