Abstract
Small lightweight cameras having high resolution are indispensible in a plethora of applications in military, homeland defense, commercial, medical and numerous other fields. Many of these applications would benefit from cameras enabled with a large field-of-view (FOV) while maintaining the camera's small footprint and high resolution. An imaging system with these characteristics may be applied to a soldier’s handheld camera, or mounted on a small robotic vehicle used for the detection and classification of unexploded ordinance (UXO). Current imaging technology either sacrifices resolution for a greater FOV or cannot maintain high resolution over the entirety of the FOV. Recent advancements including transformation optics, metamaterial-enabled gradient-index and Luneburg lenses, curved focal plane image sensors and adaptive optics have paved the way for the development of a novel camera design. Holochip will leverage these recent technical advancements to develop a high-resolution large-field-of-view camera with a small form factor and advance the state of the art of panoramic imaging.
