Pinned-contact oscillating liquid lens and imaging system
Existing liquid lense optical focusing strategies use liquid lenses after transient oscillations have dampened. The challenge with this existing liquid lens approach is two-fold. The first issue is to overcome the liquid inertia to enable a rapid state change, and the second, is to minimize the time it takes for transients induced during stoppage to Subside. Many systems use brute force activation methods to effect a shape change, creating undesired transient motion, which then necessitates a high-dissipative media to dampen them out.
