Abstract:In this paper we analyze different alternatives in the design of optimized optical arrays having spatial integration feature in a plane arrangement. More specifically, we focus our attention in the evaluation of the number of useful individual units, and its contribution to the synthetic image characteristics. The analysis has been made by using matrix optics relations. Two examples of planar thin lens spatial integrator arrays are designed and compared.
