Tunable-focus cylindrical liquid crystal lenses of four different electrode configurations are analyzed. Simulation results show that the proposed devices can have different focal lengths even if they have the same aperture size. A good agreement between experiment and simulation results is obtained. The imaging property of one of the cylindrical liquid crystal lenses is also demonstrated.
