We have developed the small three dimensional image capture system by Thin Observation Module by Bound Optics(TOMBO). As a micro lens array, we used GRIN lens array. It decreases a cross talk which lens-to-lens occurs on image sensor. This module uses a micro-lens array to form multiple images, which are captured on a photo-detector array. Digital processing of the captured multiple images is used to extract the surface profile. Preliminary experiments were executed on an evaluation system to verify the principles of the system. In this paper, we have proposed ultra thin three dimensional capture system. A compound-eye imaging system and post-processing are employed. Experimental results verify the principle of the proposed method and show the potential capability of the proposed system architecture.
