Abstract

We propose an angle tunable liquid prism actuated by electrowetting. Our prism makes an optical scanner smaller, because the laser source of the scanner can be put just below the prism. The prism consists of two transparent plates and sandwiched liquid. The diameter and the height of the prism are 2 mm and 1.5 mm, respectively. In this research, we achieved the prism capable of shifting the light path to the right and the left by 7 degrees.
