Drawing inspiration from an insect’s multi-faceted eye, University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers created miniature lenses with vast range of vision.

Their new approach created the first-ever flexible Fresnel zone plate microlenses with a wide field of view—a development that could allow everything from surgical scopes to security cameras to capture a broader perspective at a fraction the size required by conventional lenses. An array of the miniature lenses rolled into a cylinder can capture a panorama image covering a 170-degree field of view.
