Abstract
Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to continue development of improved adaptive polymer lenses (APLs) for use in a variety of imaging systems. Phase II deliverables include: A prototype dynamic-zoom rifle scope (continuous 1x to 4x zoom), utilizing an adaptive polymer lens, that can compensate for the chromatic error of the human eye; A prototype 50-mm diameter adaptive polymer lens with less than 1-wave surface error; A prototype adaptive polymer lens that can be used in the mid-IR (3-micron wavelength) with less than 0.5-dB attenuation; Concept designs for the dynamic-zoom rifle scope that can protect the human eye from laser blinding, at arbitrary visible wavelengths
