abstract

In order to optically vary the magnification of an imaging system, mechanical zoom lenses, such as those found on 35mm cameras, require multiple optical elements and use cams or gears to adjust the spacing between individual or groups of lenses. By incorporating active elements in the optical design, we can eliminate the need to change lens separations and create an imaging system with variable optical magnification that has no macroscopic moving parts.
