AbstractTunable spherical fluidic lenses are among the most essential components in adaptive optics.However, fabricating cylindrical tunable lenses has proven more challenging, mainly due to the difficulty in eliminating the defocus component.We demonstrate a parametric approach to minimize the defocus in cylindrical tunable fluidic lenses. We theoretically model and experimentally verify that a dog-bone-shaped tunable cylindrical fluidic lens exhibits almost pure cylindrical performance within the range of 5 Dof astigmatism. We anticipate these results will facilitate the use of tunable cylindrical fluidic lenses in adaptive optics applications and particularly ophthalmic devices, where rapid and reliable wavefront correction is required. ©2021 Optical Society of America.
