  • Publication number: 20190219805
    Abstract: A flat lens system includes a wedge-shaped refractive material having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface for refracting incident light beams from an object having a width of Y, from the first surface towards the second surface; a reflective material positioned at the second surface of the wedge-shaped refractive material for reflecting the refracted light beams at a first angle toward the first surface, wherein the reflected light beams are refracted from the first surface at a second angle to form an image of the object having a width of X and including chromatic aberrations; and an apparatus for processing the image of the object to reduce said chromatic aberrations.

  • Publication number: 20190212570
    Abstract: A viewing system includes a first optics system having a first aperture size and a first field of view, and optics that provide a lightpath to a first sensor. The optics system has a second optics system having a second aperture sized to be less than the first aperture size, and a second field of view greater than the first field of view; the second optics system providing a lightpath to a second sensor. Also provided is a display switchable between a first view mode in which a wide field image provided by the second sensor is displayed, and a second view mode in which a narrow field image provided by the first sensor is displayed.

  • Publication number: 20180343396
    Abstract: A reflective truncated ball imaging system includes: a reflective truncated ball element having a first surface, a second surface and a third surface for reflecting incident light beams from an object having a width of X entering into the first surface, from the second surface towards the third surface to exit the third surface and form an image of the object with a width Y; a focusing lens for focusing the reflected light beams exiting the third surface; and a sensor or view finder for sensing or viewing the light beams focused by the focusing lens.

  • Publication number: 20180120481
    Abstract: A gradient index (GRIN) lens system includes: a first GRIN lens having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface for refracting, in a first plane, incident light beams having an aspect ratio of x/y from an object from the first surface towards the second surface, the refracted incident light beams having an aspect ratio of x1/y; and a second GRIN lens having a first surface and a second surface opposite to the first surface for refracting, in a second plane, the refracted incident light beams from the first GRIN lens towards the second surface of the second GRIN lens to form a refracted image of the object with an aspect ratio of x1/y1.
