How It Works

There are no pixels.
A “Hidden layer” is used to shape a controllable electrical field.

diagramWith our solution, Liquid Crystal (LC) molecules align to a shaped electric field.

The refractive index is different for the long and short axes of Liquid Crystal molecules. Due to these differences, when the molecules align to the shaped field a gradient of refractive index, hence a lens, is created.

Unlike a traditional curved lens with a uniform refractive index, LensVector’s lens is flat. By changing the electric field the strength (or optical power in diopters) of the lens can be changed.
