Paper Abstract

A compact image capturing system called TOMBO (thin observation module by bound optics) is presented, in which a compound-eye imaging optics is utilized for very thin system configuration. The captured multiple images are processed to retrieve the object image. An experimental system was constructed for verifying the principle and clarifying the issues related on the implementation. For the retrieve, two kinds of processing are considered: simple sampling and back projection methods. The TOMBO system is an instance of opto- electronic hybrid system providing excellent features based on opto-electronic cooperation.
