Paper Abstract

3D multilayer phase gratings (nuclear layers in the human retina) of oscillating cells positioned in the image plane of a monocular optical imaging system transform light double cones by diffraction and pulsation (quantization) into the reciprocal space behind the grating (Fourier-space in the Fresnel-nearfield). This effect we call OPTORETINA not only guarantees the transformation of the physical stimuli parameters (intensity/wavelength) in the visible spectrum into three chromatically tuned adaptive RGB-color channels (diffraction orders with Brightness-Hue-Saturation aspects) and of object distances in 3D-space into spatial frequencies or temporal phase differences in reciprocal space (the MULTIDIST grating optical sensors developed at CORRSYS).
