tunable lenses this can be automatically accomplished in milliseconds (Figure 4). Nick Sischka, Imaging Engineer at Edmund Optics
in his video presentation, “Understanding liquid lens technology,”
that can be found at http://bit.ly/2wbBOi6, shows how the depth of
field limitation associated with conventional lenses can be overcome
using focus tunable lenses from Optotune (Dietikon, Switzerland;
While his presentation relates directly to production line environments, such electrically-focussed tunable lenses can be used in micro-scope-based applications, such as tracking intracellular protein complexes. Using an ix81 microscope from Olympus (Tokyo, Japan; www.
olympusamerica.com), for example, and an Optotune electrically-focussed lens, a number of Z-stacked images can be imaged at high-speed (see “High-speed microscopy with an electrically tunable lens to
image the dynamics of in vivo molecular complexes,” Review of Scientific Instruments 86, 013707 (2015); http://bit.ly/VSD-HSM).
While currently-available lenses meet the needs of many machine
vision applications, more specialized machine vision systems may
demand custom lens configurations and coatings. Luckily, many well-established lens manufacturers, with in-house production capabilities
are prepared to customize lenses to meet such applications. If such
custom lenses or systems should be required, however, they will be
more expensive and thus only found in specialized imaging systems
(such as military applications) where financial considerations are not
of importance or consumer products where thousands, if not hundreds
of thousands of products, are produced.
