Simulated PSF as a Function of Curvature

Using Abaqus, we simulated how the lenses of the array we designed deform when the array is bent. Then, using a ray-tracing algorithm, we simulated the object side point spread function (PSF) of the central lens of the array. As desired, the object-side PSF of that lens widens as the local curvature increases. We have found that every lens, except those close to the edge of the array, behave in the same manner.
