Abstract

In this paper, we described the design, fabrication and characterization of a tunable optofluidic biconcave microlens and tunable optofluidic microprism, which can perform both light focusing and deviation. This optofluidic microlens changed the curvature, and therefore the focal distance, in a biconvex manner using the flow rate ratio of the core and cladding. In addition, the use of different flow rate ratios resulted in the formation of a different apex angle of the microprism. The light path changed with the different refractive indices of the liquids and the apex angles. In this experimental setup, the focal position can be controlled on a two-dimensional plane.
