Abstract
The visual revolution triggered by the commercial application of digital image capturing devices generates the need for new miniaturized and cheap optical imaging systems and cameras. However, in imaging we observe a permanent miniaturization of elements but always similar optical principles are applied which have been known to the optical designers for many decades.
With the newly gained spectrum of technological capabilities in microoptics such as photolithography it is time to exploit completely new imaging principles such as for instance the microlens array imaging. In this paper we present an overview of our latest developments on: the technology and image processing of the artificial apposition compound eye, a rotating artificial apposition compound eye column for panoramic vision, an artificial apposition compound eye on a curved basis and an ultra-short, large object-size microscope.
