We use a phase modulation method to form tunable lens arrays on liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS). With independent voltage adjustment on each pixel, LCOS generates a high-resolution gradual phase modulation profile, which makes it possible for the lens array to be freely tunable in focal length and other parameters. A tunable lens array is made on LCOS by use of this method, and we provide details of the theoretical analyses and experimental results.
