Paper Abstract

In this contribution, a microoptical imaging system is demonstrated that is inspired by the insect compound eye. The array camera module achieves HD resolution with a z-height of 2.0 mm, which is about 50% compared to traditional cameras with comparable parameters. The FOV is segmented by multiple optical channels imaging in parallel. The partial images are stitched together to form a final image of the whole FOV by image processing software. The system is able to acquire depth maps along with the 2D video and it includes light field imaging features such as software refocusing. The microlens arrays are realized by microoptical technologies on wafer-level which are suitable for a potential fabrication in high volume.
