Bioinspired Polarization Sensors

We have designed an imaging sensor inspired by the visual system of mantis shrimp. These flamboyant creatures  are capable of capturing 16 spectral channels and 6 polarization channels. We have mimicked the polarization sensing capabilities by combining metallic nano structures with an array of imaging elements. This bio-inspires polarization sensor can capture intensity and color information in…
