Adaptive Optofluidic Devices
Steve Zamek and Yeshaiahu Fainman Department of Electrical Engineering, University of California, San Diego, California The primary advantages of fluids are their ability to easily change their shape, to mix and dissolve, and to form very smooth solidfluid and fluid-fluid interfaces. Moreover, various fluids provide very wide range of refractive indices, and by mixing fluids with large refractive index difference, we can create tunable index fluids with wide dynamic range, high resolution, and ease in control. Superiority of fluids over solids in this regard is obvious. First, geometry variations are very li…
