Fabricating low cost and high performance elastomer lenses using hanging droplets

Lee, W. M.; Upadhya, A.; Reece, P. J.; Phan, Tri Giang


Existing methods for low cost lenses using parallel mold stamping and high temperature reflow requires complex engineering controls to produce high quality lenses. These manufacturing techniques rely on expensive equipment. In this paper, we propose a low cost (< $ 0.01 per pc) flexible moldless lens fabrication method based on curing a hanging transparent polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) elastomer droplet on a curved substrate. Additional deposition of hanging droplets in the same manner led to a...[Show more]
