LPL21: Biomimetic Microfabricated Compound Eyes


In this project, we will design, fabricate, and characterize compact, integrated optical image sensors with field-of-view (FOV) angles ranging from 0 to >120. In order to accomplish compactness, manufacturability, and wide FOV simultaneously, we will adopt bio-mimetic approaches in which miniature biological imaging structures exhibiting the required features are replicated based on our technical expertise in polymer micro-machining and polymer micro-optics techniques. For further miniaturization of the imaging systems, we will develop fabrication techniques for self-writing of a self-aligned microlens and waveguide array in photopolymer
