  • Patent number: 11002891
    Abstract: An optical system is provided and includes a fixed assembly, a movable member, a driving assembly and a buffering member. The movable member is movably connected to the fixed assembly and is configured to hold an optical member having an optical axis. The driving assembly is for driving the movable member to move relative to the fixed assembly. The buffering member is disposed on a first surface of the fixed assembly. The buffering member, the movable member and the fixed assembly are arranged along the optical axis. The buffering member includes a soft resin material. The buffering member is disposed to surround the optical axis.

  • Patent number: 10935701
    Abstract: An optical system is provided, including a liquid optical module and a first optical module. The liquid optical module includes a liquid lens driving mechanism and a liquid lens assembly. The liquid lens driving mechanism includes a fixed portion, a movable portion and a first driving assembly configured to drive the movable portion to move relative to the fixed portion. The liquid lens assembly includes a liquid lens element, a fixing member and a deforming member. The first optical module is disposed in a receiving space of the fixed portion and includes: a first optical element and a first optical driving mechanism. When the movable portion is driven by the driving assembly to move relative to the fixed portion, the liquid lens element is deformed via the deforming member, causing the optical properties of the liquid lens element to change.

  • Publication number: 20190227201
    Abstract: An optical system is provided, including a holder, a fixed module, a driving assembly, and a first resilient member. The holder is used for holding an optical element that defines an optical axis. The fixed module is movably connected to the holder and has a housing and a base connected to the housing. The base has a bottom surface parallel to the optical axis and a first pillar forming a first surface that is not parallel to the optical axis. The driving assembly drives the holder to move relative to the fixed module. The first resilient member is disposed on the first surface and movably connects the holder with the fixed module.
