MNMT-Dublin Symposium VIII: Fundamental Limits of Mobile Phone Cameras

MNMT-Dublin Symposium VIII: Fundamental Limits of Mobile Phone Cameras

by MNMT-Dublin

Prof Chris Dainty was invited to give a lecture at the series of MNMT-Dublin Symposium on Fundamental Limits of Mobile Phone Cameras on 13th May. The fundamental laws of physics limit were presented in detail. These laws act against the marketing-driven aspiration for thinner and thinner camera modules. From this talk, the lens diameter, D, was emphasized as the most important factor to limit the cameras development of mobile phones.

Chris Dainty is a consultant with FotoNation in Galway, Ireland, and holds Emeritus Professor appointments at universities in the UK and Ireland. Throughout his career, he has investigated problems in optical imaging, scattering and propagation. In these areas, he has co-authored or edited six books, including "Image Science" co- authored with Rodney Shaw in 1974. He is a recipient of the International Commission for Optics Prize, IoP’s Thomas Young Medal and Prize, OSA’s C.E.K. Mees Medal and OSA's Leadership Award. He is a fellow of the Optical Society, SPIE, the Institute of Physics, and the European Optical Society and a member of the Royal Irish Academy. He was President of the Optical Society (OSA) in 2011.

The series of MNMT-Dublin Symposium started in 2016 by inviting distinguished professors and industrial leaders to open the views of the students and young researchers at MNMT and the university as well. These activities help students and young researchers to understand the latest research and developments in various disciplines.
