Along with the progress of image sensors in recent years, fix-focus cameras on mobile electronic devices do not fulfill consumer needs. With the size of mobile devices getting smaller and smaller, the displacement-to-thickness ratio is getting larger, and that makes mechanical motor systems difficult to be packaged inside cameras to achieve autofocus function. We propose a design using micromachined fluoropolymer deformable mirrors rather than traditional mechanical motor. With low color dispersion and adjustable power range of 20-diopter, deformable mirrors can be integrated into optical module and are well suitable for miniature optical auto-focus camera.
