Abstract

A miniature high-resolution omnidirectional gaze optical imaging system comprising one optical low-pass filter and 5 lens elements with just one aspheric surface was successfully designed. The total tracking length of the system is 14.7 mm and fit on a 5MPx 2/3in CCD with 2448 × 2050 pixel of 3.45 μm for the full 360° × 200° imaging. We introduced the difficulties in the design of ultrawide field of view system and proposed specific computations to overcome them by aberration theories, furthermore making a simulated analysis and performance evaluation using ZEMAX optical design software. The result shows that an admirable corrected field curvature along with a low F-theta distortion, and a perfect lateral and longitudinal color aberration correction were achieved; relative illumination of all field is over 68%; when the ambient temperature changes from −40 to 70 ℃, the modulation transfer function performs in a steady range at 75 lp/mm; all of these will promote the wide-field lens application in medical, automotive, and stereo vision.
