FIG. 4.

Imaging behavior of the liquid lens when the lever actuator is (a) at the neutral position and (b) rotated to shrink the aperture of the lens. The employed liquid is ethanol.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Relationship between the focal length and the radius of the lens aperture with a thin rotatable impeller. The triangles and solid line represent the experimental and theoretical results, respectively. The thickness of the lens , the maximum radius of the aperture , and the refractive index of the liquid .
