Abstract
In nature, the compound eye is the most common micro optical system. Currently there are few artificial compound eye designs incorporated into existing technology. Modeling and fabrication of tapered gradient index polymer lenses are in development for application in a compound array system that operates similar to the neural superposition eye. An artificial adaptation will have multiple optical channels that all have simultaneous access to a large field of view.
