18 September 2014 Experimental resolution comparison between the TOMBO and single lens systems
Author Affiliations +
Thin observation module by bounded optics (TOMBO) is an optical system substituting a micro lens-let array with smaller apertures for a conventional large full aperture. This array allows us to capture multiple low resolution sub-images of the same scene and use them to reconstruct a high resolution image. While lost resolutions can be recovered, there has been very little work on experimentally evaluating restored resolution performance in the TOMBO system. Our work focuses on resolution comparisons among a 4×4 lens-let TOMBO and Nikon lenses in the same f number condition. Experimental results present the equivalent focal length of the experimental TOMBO system.
