Multichannel sampling schemes for optical imaging systems.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We introduce a framework of focal-plane coding schemes for multichannel sampling in optical systems. A particular objective is to develop an ultrathin imager without compromising image resolution. We present a complete f/2.1 optical system with a thickness of 2.2 mm. The resolution is maintained in the thin optical system by an integrated design of the encoding scheme, the process of making the coding elements, and the decoding algorithms.
