The simulated-eye-design (SED) camera is an attempt to use the technology inherent in the human eye to enable light measurements of complicated objects and virtual images with less effects from veiling glare. The interior of a CCD (charge coupled device) camera is filled with a liquid or a solid or a combination thereof. A variety of phenomena serve to reduce the effects of stray light.

Simulated-Eye-Design Camera for High-Contrast Measurements: (SPIE99-SED01.PDF) --This publication describes the basic design of the SED camera, describes some of the directions we intend to take this work, and shows the factor of three improvement of the first prototype over a similar camera that is not liquid filled.
