Physics from Tyumen created liquid microlenses that can be applied in medicine

Scientists of the Tyumen State University developed liquid lenses that mimic the system of exchanging the eye, i.e. the focus by changing the curvature of the surface. This development can find application in medicine and navigation systems.

Scientists synthesized solution, which when exposed to Ray of light going to drop and works as a plano-convex lens. At a scientific conference, held in the Photon University of Leeds (United Kingdom), with the report on this subject was made by Alexander Malyuk, an employee of the laboratory of Photonics of 2,009 pieces. When this limits the change in focal length are determined by the properties of the solution, such as surface tension, viscosity, vapour pressure and others. The development can find applications in microbiology and medicine, navigation systems, laser control and Diagnostics, as well as in systems and information transmission devices. Studies prepared for printing two articles in scientific journals. In the last decade, the Adaptive Optics liquid interest researchers worldwide because unlike solid-state counterparts can focus an unlimited number of times without wear and do so quickly through the properties of the fluidity of liquid. Liquid lenses minimize most complex optical systems with the ability to change the focal length within wide limits.
