Fluid-focusing lens made, mimics human eye

22 Sep

Using a flexible polymer, researchers at Ohio State University have created a fluid-filled lens that can focus at distances from close-up to infinity. This is believed to have the potential to make lenses more durable as it requires only a single moving part. Additionally, the lens allows for local focus, including off-centre, mimicking the properties of a lensbaby photographic lens. The lens also takes some properties from the insect eye in being subdivided into smaller pockets, and allowing a wider angle of view.
