Abstract

In this paper, we use a dynamic mask lithography system to fabricate a polymer-stabilized blue-phase Fresnel lens. Fresnel-zone patterned light is directly generated by a programmable spatial light modulator and then projected onto the blue phase precursor. As blue phase is cured, a Fresnel-zone refractive index distribution is achieved simultaneously. The fabricated Fresnel lens features polarization-insensitivity, a broad temperature range, submillisecond response and high spatial frequency. With easy fabrication and programmable flexibility, this method has great potential for various optical applications.
