Paper Abstract

A new methodology, called Wavefront Coding, allows the joint optimization of optics, mechanics, detection and signal processing of computational imaging systems. This methodology gives the system designer access to a large design trade space. This trade space can be exploited to enable the design of imaging systems that can image with high quality, with fewer physical components, lighter weight, and less cost compared to traditional optics. This methodology is described through an example conformal single lens IR imaging system. The example system demonstrates a 50% reduction in physical components, and an approximate 45% reduction in weight compared to a traditional two lens system.
