PDAF Pixel Analysis

OSA Optics Express publishes an open access paper "Joint electromagnetic and ray-tracing simulations for quad-pixel sensor and computational imaging" by Guillaume Chataignier, Benoit Vandame, and Jérôme Vaillant from InterDigital and University Grenoble Alpes, France.

"Since Canon released the first dual-pixel autofocus in 2013, this technique has been used in many cameras and smartphones. Quad-pixel sensors, where a microlens covers 2x2 sub-pixels, will be the next development. In this paper we describe the design for such sensors; related wave optics simulations; and results, especially in terms of angular response. Then we propose a new method for mixing wave optics simulations with ray tracing simulations in order to generate physically accurate synthetic images. Those images are useful in a co-design approach by linking the pixel architecture, the main lens design and the computer vision algorithms."
