This talk will describe a new class of computational optical sensors and imagers that do not rely on traditional refractive or reflective focusing, but instead on special diffractive optical elements integrated with CMOS photodiode arrays. Images are not captured as in traditional imaging systems, but rather computed from raw photodiode signals. Because such imagers forgo the use of lenses, they can be made unprecedentedly small - as small as the cross-section of a human hair.
