Such a lens which has a microlens array to capture images--makes it possible to change the depth of field and focus point after the shutter is snapped.
Conceptually, the microlens array is a digital sensor in which each pixel has been replaced by a tiny camera.
Based on proprietary microlens array technology, the new LEOs direct light forward in a consistent beam, as opposed to the inefficient scattering of light that occurs with current conventional LEOs.
A planar microlens array with a given pitch is required to focus the reflected light of the input or output facet on the switch elements.
This will be achieved by combining a number of innovative technologies: 1) 3-dimentional sample concentration to process large amount of raw sample; 2) direct PCR in the 3D microstructure to circumvent DNA extraction step; 3) solid-phase PCR to achieve unlimited multiplexing capability; 4) supercritical angle fluorescence (SAF) microlens array for enhanced fluorescence detection and precise quantification of sepsis-related pathogens.
To construct the array of invisibility cloaks, a commercially available microlens array, containing all of the individual microlenses, was coated with a gold film.
Grapac Japan Co, of Tokyo, founded in 1925 and focused on innovative graphic methods and effects, offers a microlens array film and printing technique to create monochrome or colour graphics which are similar to lenticular prints but with 3D images from 360[degrees] viewing angles.
