Paper Abstract

A compound-eye imaging system has been proposed in which the microlenses arranged in a convex solid substrate are designed for satisfying the requirement of both a large field of view and a flat receiving plane. Based on the geometrical optics, the formulas are established for determining the parameters of the microlens in the different positions so that the focal spots of the microlens array can properly be settled on a flat plane. With the method, ray tracing is carried out for simulating the focusing process of the compound-eye imaging system. The results show that the focal spots distributed on a plane are achieved and the field of view of the system can be up to 60°.
