A 3D-Printed Archimedean Actuator for Focus adjustment in Endoscopes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We present the design and characterization of a 3D-printed spiral actuator towards focus adjustment in endoscopes. The actuator, holding an aspherical lens, can be electromagnetically actuated to achieve ~0.5 mm displacement at 10 mW power.
