A polymer-based flat microlens array is demonstrated. Within each pixel of the array, the polymer presents a circular central-symmetric inhomogeneous orientation. Pixel with such a structure behaves a lens-like character. A suitable amount of liquid crystal mixed in the polymer host can improve not only the lens flexibility but also the lens performance. Moreover, the polymer-based microlens array has the advantages of real planar surface, ultra-thin thickness, and can be designed with any aperture size.
