Paper Abstract

New optical systems containing several laterally displaced lenses or lens segments operating in parallel are discussed. Such systems are useful for high resolution imaging of small, widely separated regions of an object or for producing custom illumination patterns for applications such as triangulation based range sensing using multiple stripe illumination. Inspection problems well suited to multiple aperture imaging are described and design rules are given. Examples of both imaging and illumination applications are given.
