1 Specification
The present application is based on and claims priority of Japanese patent applications No. 2016215076 filed on Nov. 2, 2016, the entire contents of which are hereby incorporated by reference.
The present invention relates to an imaging lens which forms an image of an object on a solidstate image sensor such as a CCD sensor or a CMOS sensor used in a compact imaging device, and more particularly to an imaging lens which is built in an imaging device mounted in an increasingly compact and lowprofile smartphone and mobile phone, a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant), a game console, PC, and an information terminal such as a robot, moreover, a home appliance and an automobile with the camera function.
In recent years, it becomes common that camera function is mounted in many information terminals. Furthermore, products have been made one after another, such as home appliances with a camera, which consumer'"'"'s convenience is excellent. Demand of products such as the home appliances and the information terminals with the camera function is more increased, and development of products will be rapidly made accordingly.
In a conventional art, as an imaging lens mounted in such information terminals, for example, following Patent Document 1 discloses an imaging lens comprising 6 lenses.
Patent Document 1 (JPA2016031531) discloses an imaging lens comprising, in order from an object side to an image side along with an optical axis, a first lens element, a second lens element, a third lens element, a fourth lens element, a fifth lens element and a sixth lens element, each having an objectside surface facing an object side and an imageside surface facing an image side, and refractive power.
In the imaging lens disclosed in the above Patent Document 1, field of view is wide about 140 to 160 degrees, however, a ratio of total track length to diagonal length is about 1.3 to 1.5 and lowprofileness is not sufficiently satisfied. Additionally, when the lowprofileness is made using lens composition disclosed in the above Patent Document 1, there is a problem that aberration correction in peripheral area is very difficult, and excellent optical performance is not be obtained.
The present invention has been made in view of the above problems, and an object of the present invention is to provide an imaging lens with high resolution which effectively achieves lowprofileness while maintaining a wide field of view, and favorably corrects aberrations.
Here, “wide field of view” implies that a half field of view in a range capable of photographing is 45 degrees or more (namely the field of view is 90 degrees or more). “Lowprofile” implies that total track length is less than 5.5 mm, and a ratio of total track length to diagonal length is less than 1.1. Regarding the ratio of total track length to diagonal length, the diagonal length of the effective imaging plane of the image sensor is equal to the diameter of an effective image circle whose radius is the vertical height from an optical axis to the point where a light ray incident on the imaging lens at a maximum field of view enters the image plane, that is, the maximum image height.
Regarding terms used in the present invention, unless otherwise noted, a convex surface or a concave surface of lens surfaces implies that the paraxial portion (portion near the optical axis) of the surface is convex or concave. The pole point implies that a point on an aspheric surface at which a tangential plane intersects the optical axis perpendicularly. The total track length is, for example, defined as a distance along the optical axis from an objectside surface of an optical element nearest to the object side to the imaging plane, when thickness of the optical element such as an IR cut filter or a cover glass located between the last lens and the imaging plane of the image sensor is regarded as an air. Furthermore, the effective diameter implies the diameter of the circle whose radius is the vertical height from the optical axis to the intersection point of the lens surface and the light ray among pencil of light rays arriving at the maximum image height, which passes the farthest area from the optical axis.
In order to achieve the above object, an imaging lens according to the present invention comprises, in order from an object side to an image side, a first lens having negative refractive power, a second lens having positive refractive power, a third lens, a fourth lens having positive refractive power, a fifth lens having negative refractive power as a doublesided aspheric lens, and a sixth lens as a doublesided aspheric lens. The first lens has a concave surface facing the image side, and the aspheric surface on the image side of the sixth lens is formed as a concave surface near the optical axis and has at least one pole point at an offaxial point, and a below conditional expression (1) is satisfied:
ω≥45° (1)
where
ω: a half field of view.
According to the above structure, the first lens has negative refractive power and the concave surface facing the image side, and light ray incident to the first lens over wide field of view enters the second lens in nearly parallel along the optical axis.
The second lens has positive refractive power and contributes to lowprofileness.
The fourth lens keeps proper balance of the positive refractive powers of the second lens and the fourth lens, achieves lowprofileness, and corrects astigmatism and field curvature.
The fifth lens has negative refractive power and corrects chromatic aberration. The fifth lens is a doublesided aspheric lens, and controls light ray incident angle to the image sensor and favorably corrects distortion.
The sixth lens has the concave surface facing the image side near the optical axis and ensures a back focus. The sixth lens is a doublesided aspheric lens, and an aspheric surface on the image side has the pole point and changes to the convex surface at an area apart from the optical axis. Thus having such aspheric surfaces, together with the fifth lens, the sixth lens also controls the light ray incident angle to the image sensor and favorably corrects distortion.
