[CEATEC] Development of World’s Thinnest Liquid Crystal lens by Nippon Electric Glass
Nippon Electric Glass has developed world’s thinnest liquid crystal lens with barely 0.5 mm in thickness achieving industry’s lowest power consumption of only 0.5mW. The company has developed the new lens in collaboration with Akita Industrial Center. The reduction of the thickness of this new lens has been made possible by minimizing the thickness of glass substrate which is used to seal the liquid crystal.
The newly developed liquid crystal lens is expected to be used in mobile phone cameras as well as personal digital assistance. The new lens was on display during CEATEC Japan 2011, which took place from October 4 to 8, 2011.
