24 August 2017 Curved sensors for compact high-resolution wide field designs
Author Affiliations +
Over the recent years, a huge interest has grown for curved electronics, particularly for opto-electronics systems. Indeed, curved sensors help the correction of off-axis aberrations, such as Petzval Field Curvature and astigmatism. In this paper, we describe benefits of curvature and tunable curvature on an existing fish-eye lens. We proposed a new design architecture, compact and with a high resolution, developed specifically for a curved image sensor. We discuss about aberrations and effect of higher sensor curvature on third order aberrations. Besides, we show results of sensors’ mechanical limits and its electro-optical characterization. Finally, all these experiments and optical results demonstrate the feasibility and high performances of systems with curved sensors.
