innovation for industry
Lighter and more compact optical systems without compromising image quality
While the market for digital cameras, which are both heavy and expensive, has taken a hit from the mass adoption of smartphones, phones typically do not provide excellent image quality.
PIXCURVE is CEA-Leti’s innovative solution for the imaging market, its very latest technology for curving optical components that improve image quality.
What is PIXCURVE?
With CEA-Leti's bio-inspired technology for curving optical components, sensors
are curved in the same way as the human retina. This technology enables up to 60% reduction in lens size by reducing the number of elements needed for the optical system, without altering image quality. PIXCURVE also helps improve performance & compensation for optical aberrations. This is great news for a digital camera market searching for new momentum."
What are the target markets?
This technology, the only one of its kind in the world, offers industrials improved image quality and/or size reduction, which will translate into new business opportunities. Target markets are high-end photography cameras, smartphones, action cameras and virtual reality headsets."
