The compound eye optical system has attracted much recent attention, owing to its large field-of-view, compact structure, and rapid imaging capabilities. We designed a compact image scanner (cross-section 36.5 mm × 17 mm) based on the compound eye system. A single imaging unit is mainly composed of two freeform mirrors and a flat mirror, and its field-of-view in object space reaches 10 mm. The modulation transfer function of the system is greater than 0.6 at 12 cycles/mm corresponding to Nyquist spatial frequency of 600 dots per inch in depth-of-field of 0~4 mm. Furthermore, a larger field-of-view is achieved by splicing multiple imaging units with 1-mm overlap in object space. An object-side telecentric system is used to obtain constant magnification at different object distances and the distortion (<1 μm) is controlled by freeform mirrors. The final image is obtained by image splicing. The imaging quality of the scanner is further improved by eliminating stray light.
