Direct fabrication of silicone lenses with 3D printed parts

Kamal, Tahseen; Watkins, Rachel; Cen, Zi; Lee, Woei Ming (Steve)


The traditional process of making glass lenses requires grinding and polishing of the material which is a tedious and sensitive process. Existing polymer lens making techniques, such as high temperature reflow techniques, have been significantly simple lens making processes which cater well to customer industry. Recently, the use of UV-curing liquid lens has ushered in customized lens making (Printed Optics), but contains undesirable yellowing effects. Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a...[Show more]
