Dongmin Keum, Hyukjin Jung and Ki-Hun Jeong Planar Emulation of Natural Compound Eyes Small 8
Ten different anatomical structures of compound eyes are provided by nature for arthropod vision. All the vision schemes are not well understood to be used for inspiration in engineering applications. This method demonstrates the planar emulation of the optical schemes and their functions for two representative types of the simple apposition and the reflecting superposition by using planar micro-optics. This new paradigm can discover nature's beautiful designs and also step up engineering bio-inspiration from natural compound eyes.
