Making cameras lighter, brighter and more compact
What is Pixcurve?
PIXCURVE is CEA-Leti’s latest curving technology for various optical components. This technology helps significantly reduce optical component size and achieve higher level of performance and compensation for optical aberrations.Compactness: Up to 60% reduction in lens size in some cases without altering the quality of the image.Performance & compensation for optical aberrations:
PIXCURVE is easy-to-implement for image sensor manufacturers, and allows integrators to fabricate more compact and higher quality cameras.
CEA-Leti is currently working on:
The institute is also partnering with industrial companies to help establish supply-chain solutions.
