Precise simulation of digital camera architectures requires an accurate description of how the radiance image is transformed by optics and sampled by the image sensor array. Both for diffraction-limited imaging and for all practical lenses, the width of the optical-point-spread function differs at each wavelength. These differences are relatively small compared to coarse pixel sizes (6μm-8μm). But as pixel size decreases, to say 1.5μm-3μm, wavelength-dependent point-spread functions have a significant impact on the sensor response. We provide a theoretical treatment of how the interaction of spatial and wavelength properties influences the response of high-resolution color imagers. We then describe a model of these factors and an experimental evaluation of the model's computational accuracy.
