Paper Abstract

In tnis paper a new type of optical imaging system--Optical Compound Eye Lens is described.According in apposition cyc pattern of the insect compound eye, the general design formula of Optical compound Eye Lens are given. There are short focus, a large field of view and a mosaic structure of optical elements and detectors in this new type or optical system.ln this paper, to apply the theory of uncross axis optical system in calculation formula. the imaging formula of the limit distance point and limitless distance point on main axis of the optical system for Optical Compound Lye lens are introduced. It is pointed out in the result: the resolving power is equal to the angle between two near single eye lens.Finally, the clear aperture of Optical Compound Eye Lens is defined, and the concept of over image is advanced.
