Effect of the Liquid Density Difference on Interface Shape of Double-Liquid Lens Kong, Meimei; Zhu, Lingfeng; Chen, Dan; Liang, Zhongcheng; Zhao, Rui; Xu, Enming;
The effect of the liquid density difference on interface shape of a double-liquid lens is analyzed in detail. The expressions of interface shape of two liquids with liquid density difference are analyzed and fitted with “even asphere”. The imaging analysis of the aspheric interface shape of a double-liquid lens is presented. The results show that the density difference of two liquids can cause the interface to be an aspheric surface, which can improve the image quality of a double-liquid lens. The result provides a new selection for the related further research and a wider application field for liquid lenses.
