2. Description of the Related Art

In recent years, with the rise of portable electronic devices having camera functionalities, the demand for an optical image capturing system is raised gradually. The image sensing device of ordinary photographing camera is commonly selected from charge coupled device (CCD) or complementary metal-oxide semiconductor sensor (CMOS Sensor). In addition, as advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology enables the minimization of pixel size of the image sensing device, the development of the optical image capturing system directs towards the field of high pixels. Therefore, the requirement for high imaging quality is rapidly raised.

The traditional optical image capturing system of a portable electronic device comes with different designs, including a second-lens or a third-lens design. However, the requirement for the higher pixels and the requirement for a large aperture of an end user, like functionalities of micro filming and night view, or the requirement of wide view angle of the portable electronic device have been raised. But the optical image capturing system with the large aperture design often produces more aberration resulting in the deterioration of quality in peripherical image formation and difficulties of manufacturing, and the optical image capturing system with wide view angle design increases distortion rate in image formation, thus the optical image capturing system in prior arts cannot meet the requirement of the higher order camera lens module.

Therefore, how to effectively increase quantity of incoming light and view angle of the optical lenses, not only further improves total pixels and imaging quality for the image formation, but also considers the equity design of the miniaturized optical lenses, becomes a quite important issue.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The length of the outline curve of any surface of a signal lens element in the maximum effective half diameter position affects the functions of the surface aberration correction and the optical path difference in each view field. The longer outline curve may lead to a better function of aberration correction, but the difficulty of the production may become inevitable. Hence, the length of the outline curve of the maximum effective half diameter position of any surface of a signal lens element (ARS) has to be controlled, and especially, the ratio relations (ARS/TP) between the length of the outline curve of the maximum effective half diameter position of the surface (ARS) and the thickness of the lens element to which the surface belongs on the optical axis (TP) has to be controlled.

The length of the outline curve of the maximum effective half diameter position of the image-side surface of the second lens element is denoted as ARS22, and the ratio between ARS22 and TP2 is ARS22/TP2. The ratio relations between the lengths of the outline curve of the maximum effective half diameter position of any surface of the other lens elements and the thicknesses of the lens elements to which the surfaces belong on the optical axis (TP) are denoted in the similar way.

The length of outline curve of half of an entrance pupil diameter of any surface of a single lens element especially affects the functions of the surface aberration correction and the optical path difference in each shared view field. The longer outline curve may lead to a better function of aberration correction, but the difficulty of the production may become inevitable. Hence, the length of outline curve of half of an entrance pupil diameter of any surface of a single lens element has to be controlled, and especially, the ratio relationship between the length of outline curve of half of an entrance pupil diameter of any surface of a single lens element and the thickness on the optical axis has to be controlled. For example, the length of outline curve of the half of the entrance pupil diameter of the object-side surface of the first lens element is denoted as ARE11, and the thickness of the first lens element on the optical axis is TP1, and the ratio thereof is ARE11/TP1. The length of outline curve of the half of the entrance pupil diameter of the image-side surface of the first lens element is denoted as ARE12, and the thickness of the first lens element on the optical axis is TP1, and the ratio thereof is ARE12/TP1. The length of outline curve of the half of the entrance pupil diameter of the object-side surface of the first lens element is denoted as ARE21, and the thickness of the second lens element on the optical axis is TP2, and the ratio thereof is ARE21/TP2. The length of outline curve of the half of the entrance pupil diameter of the image-side surface of the first lens element is denoted as ARS22, and the thickness of the second lens element on the optical axis is TP2, and the ratio thereof is ARS22/TP2. The ratio relationship of the remaining lens elements of the optical image capturing system can be referred as mentioned above.

The optical image capturing system described above may be configured to form the image on the image sensing device which is shorter than 1/1.2 inch in diagonal length. The preferred size of the image sensing device is 1/2.3 inch. The pixel size of the image sensing device is smaller than 1.4 micrometers (μm), preferably the pixel size thereof is smaller than 1.12 micrometers (μm). The best pixel size thereof is smaller than 0.9 micrometers (μm). Furthermore, the optical image capturing system is applicable to the image sensing device with aspect ratio of 16:9.

The optical image capturing system described above is applicable to the demand of video recording with above millions or ten millions-pixels (such as 4K2K or UHD, QHD) and leads to a good imaging quality.

The height of optical system (HOS) may be reduced to achieve the minimization of the optical image capturing system when the absolute value of f1 is larger than f4 (|f1|>f4).

When |f2|+|f3|>|f1|+|f4| is satisfied with above relations, at least one of the second through third lens elements may have weak positive refractive power or weak negative refractive power. The weak refractive power indicates that an absolute value of the focal length of a specific lens element is greater than 10. When at least one of the second through third lens elements has the weak positive refractive power, the positive refractive power of the first lens element can be shared, such that the unnecessary aberration will not appear too early. On the contrary, when at least one of the second through third lens elements has the weak negative refractive power, the aberration of the optical image capturing system can be corrected and fine tuned.

The fourth lens element may have negative refractive power and a concave image-side surface. Hereby, the back focal length is reduced for keeping the miniaturization, to miniaturize the lens element effectively. In addition, at least one of the object-side surface and the image-side surface of the fourth lens element may have at least one inflection point, such that the angle of incident with incoming light from an off-axis view field can be suppressed effectively and the aberration in the off-axis view field can be corrected further.

The Third Embodiment (Embodiment 3)

Please refer to FIG. 3A and FIG. 3B. FIG. 3A is a schematic view of the optical image capturing system according to the third embodiment of the present application, FIG. 3B is longitudinal spherical aberration curves, astigmatic field curves, and an optical distortion curve of the optical image capturing system in the order from left to right according to the third embodiment of the present application, and FIG. 3C is a lateral aberration diagram of tangential fan, sagittal fan, the longest operation wavelength and the shortest wavelength passing through an edge of the entrance pupil and incident on the image plane by 0.7 HOI according to the third embodiment of the present application. As shown in FIG. 3A, in order from an object side to an image side, the optical image capturing system includes an aperture stop 300, first lens element 310, a second lens element 320, a third lens element 330, a fourth lens element 340, an IR-bandstop filter 370, an image plane 380, and an image sensing device 390.

The first lens element 310 has positive refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The first lens element 310 has a convex object-side surface 312 and a concave image-side surface 314, and both of the object-side surface 312 and the image-side surface 314 are aspheric. The object-side surface 312 and the image-side surface 324 have an inflection point respectively.

The second lens element 320 has negative refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The second lens element 320 has a convex object-side surface 322 and a concave image-side surface 324, and both of the object-side surface 322 and the image-side surface 324 are aspheric. The object-side surface 322 has two inflection point.

The third lens element 330 has positive refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The third lens element 330 has a concave object-side surface 332 and a convex image-side surface 334, and both of the object-side surface 332 and the image-side surface 334 are aspheric. The image-side surface 334 has two inflection points.

The fourth lens element 340 has negative refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The fourth lens element 340 has a convex object-side surface 342 and a concave image-side surface 344, and both of the object-side surface 342 and the image-side surface 344 are aspheric. The object-side surface 342 has three inflection points and the image-side surface 344 has an inflection point.

The IR-bandstop filter 370 is made of glass material without affecting the focal length of the optical image capturing system and it is disposed between the fourth lens element 340 and the image plane 380.

In the optical image capturing system of the third embodiment, focal lengths of the second lens element 320, the third lens element 330 and the fourth lens element 340 are f2, f3 and f4, respectively. The following relations are satisfied: |f2|+|f3|=10.0909 mm; |f1|+|f4|=4.7905 mm; and |f1|+|f3|>|f4|.

In the optical image capturing system of the third embodiment, a sum of focal lengths of all lens elements with positive refractive power is ΣPP. The following relation is satisfied: ΣPP=f1+f3. Hereby, it is favorable for allocating the positive refractive power of the first lens element 310 to other positive lens elements and the significant aberrations generated in the process of moving the incident light can be suppressed.

In the optical image capturing system of the third embodiment, a sum of focal lengths of all lens elements with negative refractive power is ΣNP. The following relation is satisfied: ΣNP=f2+4. Hereby, it is favorable for allocating the negative refractive power of the fourth lens element 340 to other negative lens elements.

Please refer to the following Table 5 and Table 6.

The detailed data of the optical image capturing system of the third embodiment is as shown in Table 5.

The Sixth Embodiment (Embodiment 6)

Please refer to FIG. 6A and FIG. 6B. FIG. 6A is a schematic view of the optical image capturing system according to the sixth Embodiment of the present application, FIG. 6B is longitudinal spherical aberration curves, astigmatic field curves, and an optical distortion curve of the optical image capturing system in the order from left to right according to the sixth Embodiment of the present application, and FIG. 6C is a lateral aberration diagram of tangential fan, sagittal fan, the longest operation wavelength and the shortest wavelength passing through an edge of the entrance pupil and incident on the image plane by 0.7 HOI according to the sixth embodiment of the present application. As shown in FIG. 6A, in order from an object side to an image side, the optical image capturing system includes first lens element 610, an aperture stop 600, a second lens element 620, a third lens element 630, a fourth lens element 640, an IR-bandstop filter 670, an image plane 680, and an image sensing device 690.

The first lens element 610 has positive refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The first lens element 610 has a convex object-side surface 612 and a concave image-side surface 614, both of the object-side surface 612 and the image-side surface 614 are aspheric, and the object-side surface 612 and the image-side surface 614 have an inflection point respectively.

The second lens element 620 has positive refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The second lens element 620 has a concave object-side surface 622 and a convex image-side surface 624, and both of the object-side surface 622 and the image-side surface 624 are aspheric.

The third lens element 630 has negative refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The third lens element 630 has a concave object-side surface 632 and a convex image-side surface 634, and both of the object-side surface 632 and the image-side surface 634 are aspheric. The image-side surface 634 has an inflection point.

The fourth lens element 640 has positive refractive power and it is made of plastic material. The fourth lens element 640 has a convex object-side surface 642 and a concave image-side surface 644, and both of the object-side surface 642 and the image-side surface 644 are aspheric. The object-side surface 642 has two inflection points and the image-side surface 644 has an inflection point.

The IR-bandstop filter 670 is made of glass material without affecting the focal length of the optical image capturing system and it is disposed between the fourth lens element 640 and the image plane 680.

In the optical image capturing system of the sixth Embodiment, focal lengths of the second lens element 620, the third lens element 630 and the fourth lens element 640 are f2, f3 and f4, respectively. The following relations are satisfied: |f2|+|f3|=7.6703 mm; |f1|+|f4|=7.7843 mm.

In the optical image capturing system of the sixth Embodiment, a sum of focal lengths of all lens elements with positive refractive power is ΣPP. The following relations are satisfied: ΣPP=f1+f3. Hereby, it is favorable for allocating the positive refractive power of the first lens element 610 to other positive lens elements and the significant aberrations generated in the process of moving the incident light can be suppressed.

In the optical image capturing system of the sixth Embodiment, a sum of focal lengths of all lens elements with negative refractive power is ΣNP. The following relations are satisfied: ΣNP=f2+f4. Hereby, it is favorable for allocating the negative refractive power of the fourth lens element to other positive lens elements.

Please refer to the following Table 11 and Table 12.

The detailed data of the optical image capturing system of the sixth Embodiment is as shown in Table 11.
