About the Authors
  • Presenting state-of-the-art research into the dynamic field of tunable micro-optics, this is the first book to provide a comprehensive survey covering a varied range of topics including novel materials, actuation concepts and new imaging systems in optics. Internationally renowned researchers present a diverse range of chapters on cutting-edge materials, devices and subsystems, including soft matter, artificial muscles, tunable lenses and apertures, photonic crystals, and complete tunable imagers. Special contributions also provide in-depth treatment of micro-optical characterisation, scanners, and the use of natural eye models as inspiration for new concepts in advanced optics. With applications extending from medical diagnosis to fibre telecommunications, Tunable Micro-optics equips readers with a solid understanding of the broader technical context through its interdisciplinary approach to the realisation of new types of optical systems. This is an essential resource for engineers in industry and academia, and advanced students working on optical systems design.

    • Delivers a broad overview of the field, enriched by a selection of more focused chapters that spotlight some of the most cutting-edge research in this area
    • Combines wider research in micro-optics from the international community with findings collected from a six-year program focused on tunable micro-optics funded by the German Research Foundation
    • Examines the materials and devices on which tunable optical components are based, and addresses the implementation of these components in complex tunable systems
