We developed a tunable wedge prism by electrowetting actuation. Our prism can shift the field of view to the left or to the right and is useful for small cameras and endoscopes because its field of view can be changed without the need for large instruments. It consists of two plates that face each other, and a liquid is sandwiched between them. The liquid and plates form a wedge when the angle between the plates is changed. We used electrowetting to change the angle between the plates. The wedge prism is small because the liquid driven by electrowetting works as a prism. In addition, the prism produces a clear field of view because its optical flatness is determined by the flatness of the plates.
