Over the years, mobile phone had become part of our daily necessity. It brought convenience to us to many aspect. However, even when technology improves and the research had been done, the camera phone lens are maintained at a fixed thickness. Thus, researches had been done further to reduce the thickness by introducing thermal actuator to move the lens by power or temperature change. In this project, author intend to find out the effectiveness of the new polymer composite as compared to the previous version to enhance the stroke of the thermal actuator. While the previous version is widely used in many organisations and companies to work for related field, the new polymer Silres H62C is said to be a better version as compared to the previous version SU-8. In addition, author intend to experiment the effectiveness of the equipment used during the project which were used to analyse the results.
