Typical electro-optic imaging systems produce image aliasing artifacts. Superresolution algorithms process multiple aliased images to yield a single high-resolution image. We design imaging systems by jointly optimizing the optics and postprocessing to maximize such multiframe imaging performance. We describe efficient software methods that can be used to perform joint design by use of commercially available lens design software.
