Abstract

We propose what we believe to be a novel, refined model of the angular sensitivity function of artificial apposition compound eyes. Compared with the formerly used Gaussian approximation that was derived for natural compound eyes, our model is better suited to describe the resolution capacity of artificial compound eyes accounting for the cylindrical sensitivity function of technical receptors. It is shown that this analytic model is valid over a broad range of parameters of the optical system, which was not fulfilled by one of the previous models. Finally, an analytic approach is used to derive the modulation transfer function of these multichannel imaging systems.
