A novel fabrication method using holographic exposure for switchable blue phase (BP) liquid crystal (LC)/polymer Fresnel lens was demonstrated. The Fresnel pattern can be achieved by interfering a planar and a spherical wave fronts with a 532-nm laser. The BPLC/polymer Fresnel lens can thus be fabricated without photo mask and controlled with a simpler driving compared with the conventional LC Fresnel lens.
