Paper Abstract

An ultrathin objective with the configuration of an artificial apposition compound eye was designed in order to obtain a miniaturized camera. The optical design was based in a nonconventional multi aperture configuration of a diurnal insect eye that uses ommatidia as individual units. An aspherical cylindrical micro doublet (CMD), obtained by ALSIE, is used in this optical design to improve the image quality in more than 200 percent in comparison with the first design with the spherical CMD.
