Abstract

The angular resolution of many commercial imaging systems is limited, not by diffraction or optical aberrations, but by pixilation effects. Multiaperture imaging has previously demonstrated the potential for super-resolution (SR) imaging using a lenslet array and single detector array. We describe the practical demonstration of SR imaging using an array of 25 independent commercial-off-the-shelf cameras. This technique demonstrates the potential for increasing the angular resolution toward the diffraction limit, but without the limit on angular resolution imposed by the use of a single detector array.
