Adaptive Focal Length Lens Array

Here, we see an elastic lens array where the focal length of each lens can adapt to local curvature. Notice the contiguous coverage of the scene achieved by this lens array, with no gaps between the fields of view of adjacent lenses. If the geometric and material properties of the elastic lens array are designed well, this desired adaptation of focal length will hold true over a wide range of curvatures of the array, avoiding aliasing and blurring in the captured image.
