Abstract

A reconfigurable telecentric imaging system that can simultaneously capture multispectral and multi-polarization information in a single snapshot is demonstrated. The proposed design utilizes a telecentric imaging objective and a light pipe for image multiplexing. An array of filters is used to filter each of the multiplexed images at an intermediate image plane. In this paper, we will discuss the system configuration and present the experimental results.
