Abstract

It was found in Part 1 of this paper [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 28, 2148 (2011)] that only variable power optical effects that can be described by quadratic functions can be formed by laterally translating two-element variable power lenses. In the case of rotationally translating two-element variable power lenses, possible designs are found by mapping possible laterally translating designs from a Cartesian space to the polar coordinate space of the rotationally translating lens. Several designs that have been manufactured or suggested theoretically are examined in Part 2 to see which ones are true variable power lenses.
