BACKGROUND

The ever-increasing demand for smaller sized mobile devices, such as cell phones, digital cameras, tablet computer, personal digital assistant (PDA), etc. has triggered a corresponding growing need for smaller sized photography modules, comprising elements such as an optical imaging lens, a module housing unit, and an image sensor, etc., contained therein. Size reductions may be achieved from various aspects of the mobile devices, which may include not only the charge coupled device (CCD) and the complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), but also the optical imaging lens mounted therein. When reducing the size of the optical imaging lens, however, achieving good optical characteristics may become a challenging problem. Furthermore, high view angle and great aperture size are important for applying a photography module in vehicles.

In light of the above issues, designing an optical imaging lens with a shorter length is not a simple task to shrink the size of each element therein proportionally, and more factors, such as material nature, production difficulty, assembly yield, and so forth are crucial to the application of the design.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

For a more complete understanding of the present disclosure and its advantages, reference is now made to the following description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which like reference numbers indicate like features. Persons having ordinary skill in the art will understand other varieties for implementing example embodiments, including those described herein. The drawings are not limited to specific scale and similar reference numbers are used for representing similar elements. As used in the disclosures and the appended claims, the terms “example embodiment,”“exemplary embodiment,” and “present embodiment” do not necessarily refer to a single embodiment, although it may, and various example embodiments may be readily combined and interchanged, without departing from the scope or spirit of the present disclosure. Furthermore, the terminology as used herein is for the purpose of describing example embodiments only and is not intended to be a limitation of the disclosure. In this respect, as used herein, the term “in” may include “in” and “on”, and the terms “a”, “an” and “the” may include singular and plural references. Furthermore, as used herein, the term “by” may also mean “from”, depending on the context. Furthermore, as used herein, the term “if” may also mean “when” or “upon”, depending on the context. Furthermore, as used herein, the words “and/or” may refer to and encompass any and all possible combinations of one or more of the associated listed items.

In the present specification, the description “a lens element having positive refracting power (or negative refracting power)” means that the paraxial refracting power of the lens element in Gaussian optics is positive (or negative). The description “An object-side (or image-side) surface of a lens element” only includes a specific region of that surface of the lens element where imaging rays are capable of passing through that region, namely the clear aperture of the surface. The aforementioned imaging rays can be classified into two types, chief ray Lc and marginal ray Lm. Taking a lens element depicted in FIG. 1 as an example, the lens element is rotationally symmetric, where the optical axis I is the axis of symmetry. The region A of the lens element is defined as “a portion in a vicinity of the optical axis”, and the region C of the lens element is defined as “a portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element”. Besides, the lens element may also have an extending portion E extended radially and outwardly from the region C, namely the portion outside of the clear aperture of the lens element. The extending portion E is usually used for physically assembling the lens element into an optical imaging lens system. Under normal circumstances, the imaging rays would not pass through the extending portion E because those imaging rays only pass through the clear aperture. The structures and shapes of the aforementioned extending portion E are only examples for technical explanation, the structures and shapes of lens elements should not be limited to these examples. Note that the extending portions of the lens element surfaces depicted in the following embodiments are partially omitted.

The following criteria are provided for determining the shapes and the portions of lens element surfaces set forth in the present specification. These criteria mainly determine the boundaries of portions under various circumstances including the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis, the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of a lens element surface, and other types of lens element surfaces such as those having multiple portions.

FIG. 1 is a radial cross-sectional view of a lens element. Before determining boundaries of those described portions, two referential points should be defined first, central point and transition point. The central point of a surface of a lens element is a point of intersection of that surface and the optical axis. The transition point is a point on a surface of a lens element, where the tangent line of that point is perpendicular to the optical axis. Additionally, if multiple transition points appear on one single surface, then these transition points are sequentially named along the radial direction of the surface with numbers starting from the first transition point. For instance, the first transition point (closest one to the optical axis), the second transition point, and the Nth transition point (farthest one to the optical axis within the scope of the clear aperture of the surface). The portion of a surface of the lens element between the central point and the first transition point is defined as the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis. The portion located radially outside of the Nth transition point (but still within the scope of the clear aperture) is defined as the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element. In some embodiments, there are other portions existing between the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis and the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element; the numbers of portions depend on the numbers of the transition point(s). In addition, the radius of the clear aperture (or a so-called effective radius) of a surface is defined as the radial distance from the optical axis I to a point of intersection of the marginal ray Lm and the surface of the lens element.

Referring to FIG. 2, determining the shape of a portion is convex or concave depends on whether a collimated ray passing through that portion converges or diverges. That is, while applying a collimated ray to a portion to be determined in terms of shape, the collimated ray passing through that portion will be bended and the ray itself or its extension line will eventually meet the optical axis. The shape of that portion can be determined by whether the ray or its extension line meets (intersects) the optical axis (focal point) at the object-side or image-side. For instance, if the ray itself intersects the optical axis at the image side of the lens element after passing through a portion, i.e. the focal point of this ray is at the image side (see point R in FIG. 2), the portion will be determined as having a convex shape. On the contrary, if the ray diverges after passing through a portion, the extension line of the ray intersects the optical axis at the object side of the lens element, i.e. the focal point of the ray is at the object side (see point M in FIG. 2), that portion will be determined as having a concave shape. Therefore, referring to FIG. 2, the portion between the central point and the first transition point has a convex shape, the portion located radially outside of the first transition point has a concave shape, and the first transition point is the point where the portion having a convex shape changes to the portion having a concave shape, namely the border of two adjacent portions. Alternatively, there is another common way for a person with ordinary skill in the art to tell whether a portion in a vicinity of the optical axis has a convex or concave shape by referring to the sign of an “R” value, which is the (paraxial) radius of curvature of a lens surface. The R value which is commonly used in conventional optical design software such as Zemax and CodeV. The R value usually appears in the lens data sheet in the software. For an object-side surface, positive R means that the object-side surface is convex, and negative R means that the object-side surface is concave. Conversely, for an image-side surface, positive R means that the image-side surface is concave, and negative R means that the image-side surface is convex. The result found by using this method should be consistent as by using the other way mentioned above, which determines surface shapes by referring to whether the focal point of a collimated ray is at the object side or the image side.

For none transition point cases, the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis is defined as the portion between 0˜50% of the effective radius (radius of the clear aperture) of the surface, whereas the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element is defined as the portion between 50˜100% of effective radius (radius of the clear aperture) of the surface.

Referring to the first example depicted in FIG. 3, only one transition point, namely a first transition point, appears within the clear aperture of the image-side surface of the lens element. Portion I is a portion in a vicinity of the optical axis, and portion II is a portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element. The portion in a vicinity of the optical axis is determined as having a concave surface due to the R value at the image-side surface of the lens element is positive. The shape of the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element is different from that of the radially inner adjacent portion, i.e. the shape of the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element is different from the shape of the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis; the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element has a convex shape.

Referring to the second example depicted in FIG. 4, a first transition point and a second transition point exist on the object-side surface (within the clear aperture) of a lens element. In which portion I is the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis, and portion III is the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element. The portion in a vicinity of the optical axis has a convex shape because the R value at the object-side surface of the lens element is positive. The portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element (portion III) has a convex shape. What is more, there is another portion having a concave shape existing between the first and second transition point (portion II).

Referring to a third example depicted in FIG. 5, no transition point exists on the object-side surface of the lens element. In this case, the portion between 0˜50% of the effective radius (radius of the clear aperture) is determined as the portion in a vicinity of the optical axis, and the portion between 50˜100% of the effective radius is determined as the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element. The portion in a vicinity of the optical axis of the object-side surface of the lens element is determined as having a convex shape due to its positive R value, and the portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the lens element is determined as having a convex shape as well.

In the present disclosure, examples of an optical imaging lens which is a prime lens are provided. Example embodiments of an optical imaging lens may comprise a first lens element, a second lens element, a third lens element, a fourth lens element and a fifth lens element, each of the lens elements may comprise refracting power, an object-side surface facing toward an object side and an image-side surface facing toward an image side and a central thickness defined along the optical axis. These lens elements may be arranged sequentially from the object side to the image side along an optical axis, and example embodiments of the lens may comprise no other lenses having refracting power beyond the five lens elements. In an example embodiment: the first lens element has negative refracting power; the second lens element has positive refracting power, and the object-side surface of the second lens element may comprise a convex portion in a vicinity of the optical axis; the third lens element has negative refracting power, and the image-side surface of the third lens element may comprise a concave portion in a vicinity of the optical axis and a convex portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the third lens element; the object-side surface of the fourth lens element may comprise a concave portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the fourth lens element; the object-side surface of the fifth lens element may comprise a concave portion in a vicinity of a periphery of the fifth lens element, and the image-side surface of the fifth lens element may comprise a concave portion in a vicinity of the optical axis; and T2 and T4 satisfy the inequality:

T4/T2≤1.55  Inequality (1).

Preferably, the lens elements are designed in light of the optical characteristics and the length of the optical imaging lens. For example, the negative refracting power of the first lens element may assist in collecting light with great incident angle. Together with the positive refracting power of the second lens element and the convex portion in a vicinity of the optical axis formed on the object-side surface thereof, the light may be collected even more effectively. The negative refracting power of the third lens element, the concave portion in a vicinity of the optical axis formed on the image-side surface thereof and the convex portion in a vicinity of the periphery formed on the image-side surface thereof may assist in adjusting the image aberration occurred by the first two lens elements effectively. Further with the convex portion in a vicinity of the periphery of the third lens element formed on the image-side surface thereof, the light around the periphery may be collected to promote the quality of the image effectively. The concave portion in a vicinity of the periphery of the fourth lens element formed on the object-side surface thereof may assist in adjusting the image aberration occurred by the first three lens elements effectively. The concave portion in a vicinity of the periphery of the fifth lens element formed on the object-side surface thereof and the concave portion in a vicinity of the optical axis formed on the image-side surface thereof may assist in adjusting the image aberration occurred by the first four lens elements effectively. Further, the position of the aperture stop requires for consideration of the shape details, thicknesses of the lens elements and air gaps between the lens elements. For example, the first lens element having negative refracting power and the aperture stop between the first and second lens element, a meaningful position, may assist in collecting light with great incident angle. Though aforesaid designs, the length of the optical imaging lens may be reduced and meanwhile the imaging quality of the optical imaging lens may be ensured.

Additionally, values of parameters may be controlled to assist in designing optical imaging lenses with good optical characters and a short length. To shorten the length of the optical imaging lens, the thickness of the lens elements and/or the air gaps between the lens elements are required optionally for shorter distances; however, considering both the difficulty to assembly the optical imaging lens and imaging quality, the optical imaging lens may be better configured if it satisfies: T4/T2≤1.55, and the value of T4/T2 may preferably be within about 1.00˜1.55; BFL/(G1+G4)≤5.6, and the value of BFL/(G1+G4) may preferably be within 1.00˜5.60; TL/(T1+G4)≥6.5, and the value of TL/(T1+G4) may preferably be within about 6.50˜17.00; (T4+G1)/G1≤7, and the value of (T4+G1)/G1 may preferably be within about 1.50˜7.00; T4/T3≥2.9, and the value of T4/T3 may preferably be within about 2.90˜6.50; (T5+G3)/T3≥2.1, and the value of (T5+G3)/T3 may preferably be within about 2.10˜4.00; (T2+T5)/T3≥3.7, and the value of (T2+T5)/T3 may preferably be within about 3.70˜6.50; TL/(T3+G4)≥9.0, and the value of TL/(T3+G4) may preferably be within about 9.00˜16.50; (T2+G1)/BFL≥0.7, and the value of (T2+G1)/BFL may preferably be within about 0.70˜2.00; ALT/(T1+G4)≥4.8, and the value of ALT/(T1+G4) may preferably be within about 4.80˜13.00; and G1/(G2+G4)≥0.9, and the value of G1/(G2+G4) may preferably be within about 0.90˜4.00; TTL/(T1+G4)≥8.5, and the value of TTL/(T1+G4) may preferably be within about 8.50˜22.00; TTL/(T2+G1)≥3.9, and the value of TTL/(T2+G1) may preferably be within about 3.90˜7.00; Gaa/T3≥2, and the value of Gaa/T3 may preferably be within about 2.00˜6.50.

In light of the unpredictability in an optical system, in the present disclosure, satisfying these inequalities listed above may preferably shortening the length of the optical imaging lens, lowering the f-number, enlarging the shot angle, promoting the imaging quality and/or increasing the yield in the assembly process.

When implementing example embodiments, more details about the convex or concave surface could be incorporated for one specific lens element or broadly for plural lens elements to enhance the control for the system performance and/or resolution, or promote the yield. It is noted that the details listed here could be incorporated in example embodiments if no inconsistency occurs.

Several example embodiments and associated optical data will now be provided for illustrating example embodiments of optical imaging lens with good optical characteristics, a wide view angle and a low f-number. Reference is now made to FIGS. 6-9. FIG. 6 illustrates an example cross-sectional view of an optical imaging lens 1 having five lens elements of the optical imaging lens according to a first example embodiment. FIG. 7 shows example charts of longitudinal spherical aberration and other kinds of optical aberrations of the optical imaging lens 1 according to an example embodiment.

Please refer to FIG. 38, which shows the values of TL, BFL, ALT, Gaa, TTL, T4/T2, BFL/(G1+G4), TL/(T1+G4), (T4+G1)/G1, T4/T3, (T5+G3)/T3, (T2+T5)/T3, TL/(T3+G4), (T2+G1)/BFL, ALT/(T1+G4), G1/(G2+G4), TTL/(T1+G4), TTL/(T2+G1) and Gaa/T3 of all eight embodiments, and it is clear that the optical imaging lens of the present disclosure satisfy the inequality (1) and/or inequalities (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9), (10), (11), (12), (13) and/or (14).

Reference is now made to FIG. 39, which illustrates an example structural view of a first embodiment of mobile device 20 applying an optical imaging lens. The mobile device 20 may comprise a housing 21 and a photography module 22 positioned in the housing 21. Examples of the mobile device 20 may be, but are not limited to, a mobile phone, a camera, a tablet computer, a personal digital assistant (PDA), etc.

As shown in FIG. 39, the photography module 22 may comprise an optical imaging lens with five lens elements, which is a prime lens and for example the optical imaging lens 1 of the first embodiment, a lens barrel 23 for positioning the optical imaging lens 1, a module housing unit 24 for positioning the lens barrel 23, a substrate 172 for positioning the module housing unit 24, and an image sensor 171 which may be positioned on the substrate 172 and at an image side of the optical imaging lens 1. The image plane 170 may be formed on the image sensor 171.

In some other example embodiments, the structure of the filtering unit 160 may be omitted. In some example embodiments, the housing 21, the lens barrel 23, and/or the module housing unit 24 may be integrated into a single component or assembled by multiple components. In some example embodiments, the image sensor 171 used in the present embodiment may be directly attached to a substrate 172 in the form of a chip on board (COB) package, and such package may be different from traditional chip scale packages (CSP) since COB package does not require a cover glass before the image sensor 171 in the optical imaging lens 1. The described example embodiments are not limited to this package type and could be selectively incorporated in other described embodiments.

The five lens elements 110, 120, 130, 140, 150 are positioned in the lens barrel 23 in the way of separated by an air gap between any two adjacent lens elements.

The module housing unit 24 may comprise a lens backseat 2401 for positioning the lens barrel 23 and an image sensor base 2406 positioned between the lens backseat 2401 and the image sensor 171. The lens barrel 23 and the lens backseat 2401 are positioned along a same axis I-I′, and the lens backseat 2401 may be close to the outside of the lens barrel 23. The image sensor base 2406 may be exemplarily close to the lens backseat 2401 here. The image sensor base 2406 could be optionally omitted in some other embodiments of the present disclosure.

Because the length of the optical imaging lens 1 may be merely 5.389 mm, the size of the mobile device 20 may be quite small. Therefore, the embodiments described herein meet the market demand for smaller sized product designs.

Reference is now made to FIG. 40, which shows another structural view of a second embodiment of mobile device 20′ applying optical imaging lens 1. One difference between the mobile device 20′ and the mobile device 20 may be the lens backseat 2401 comprising a first seat unit 2402, a second seat unit 2403, a coil 2404 and a magnetic unit 2405. The first seat unit 2402 may be close to the outside of the lens barrel 23, and positioned along an axis I-I′, and the second seat unit 2403 may be around the outside of the first seat unit 2402 and positioned along with the axis I-I′. The coil 2404 may be positioned between the first seat unit 2402 and the inside of the second seat unit 2403. The magnetic unit 2405 may be positioned between the outside of the coil 2404 and the inside of the second seat unit 2403.

The lens barrel 23 and the optical imaging lens 1 positioned therein are driven by the first seat unit 2402 for moving along the axis I-I′. The rest structure of the mobile device 20′ may be similar to the mobile device 20.

Similarly, because the length of the optical imaging lens 1, 5.389 mm, may be shortened, the mobile device 20′ may be designed with a smaller size and meanwhile good optical performance may still be provided. Therefore, the present embodiment meets the demand of small sized product design and the request of the market.

According to above illustration, the longitudinal spherical aberration, astigmatism aberration both in the sagittal direction and tangential direction and distortion aberration in all embodiments are meet user term of a related product in the market. The off-axis light with respect to three different wavelengths (470 nm, 555 nm, 650 nm) is focused around an image point and the offset of the off-axis light relative to the image point is well controlled with suppression for the longitudinal spherical aberration, astigmatism aberration both in the sagittal direction and tangential direction and distortion aberration. The curves of different wavelengths are closed to each other, and this represents that the focusing for light having different wavelengths is good to suppress chromatic dispersion. In summary, lens elements are designed and matched for achieving good imaging quality.
