Author

Description

This example demonstrates the flexibility of the Mathematica application package Optica. A lens made of a polymer membrane is modeled. The membrane seals a chamber with a pressure higher than the environment and is therefore deformed. A ray traversing the flexible lens passes a window, the pressure fluid, and the membrane.
