High Resolution Miniaturized Lens Arrays Scanners and Image Formation Systems For Medical Applications


The optical design of miniaturized high resolution micro lens arrays systemsMLAs, for scanning and image formation, is achieved. The types of scanner systemsthat have been handled are microlens array MLA scanner system with f-number F#2.54, for two scanning angles. The one with higher scanning angle predicts theinfluence of increasing aberrations on the output. The imaging capabilities of singleand multiple array systems are presented. Their performance characteristics arestudied and analyzed to fit medical applications, the most important are compactnessand resolution. The overall size of the designed systems is a fraction of a centimeterand the resolution is in a few micrometers regime. However, it is found thatoptimizations are needed to enhance the quality of images, specifically for largerscanning angles.
