  In the case of Patent Document 1, stray light generated at the interface of each lens is directly incident on the image sensor. Moreover, in the medical imaging device, it is preferable that the front end side (object side) of the objective lens is flat, but even in that case, it is not certain whether the effect to be achieved in Patent Document 1 can be realized. . In Patent Document 1, an aperture stop is inserted into the lens barrel from the objective side, and each lens and presser ring are inserted from the image side. This is disadvantageous from the viewpoint of assembly man-hours for the lens unit.

  In the case of Patent Document 2, stray light is blocked by installing a light shielding component different from the lens barrel between the lenses. For this reason, stray light from the outer periphery of the light shielding component (between the light shielding component and the lens barrel) cannot be blocked. Further, by adding a light shielding part, the cost is increased from the viewpoints of member cost, assembly man-hours, and yield. Moreover, in the medical imaging device, it is preferable that the front end side (object side) of the objective lens is flat, but even in that case, it is not certain whether the effect to be achieved in Patent Document 2 can be realized. .

Hereinafter, based on a preferred embodiment, the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.
In this specification, the xy direction is a direction perpendicular to the optical axis, and the z direction means the optical axis direction. Of the xy directions, the direction centered on the optical axis may be referred to as the radial direction. In the present specification, the x direction and the y direction are not particularly defined, but two directions orthogonal to each other in the xy directions can be arbitrarily selected.

FIG. 1 is a cross-sectional view of the imaging module 10 of the first embodiment. The imaging module 10 includes an objective lens 13, an imaging element 14, and a holder 20.
As a dimension of the holder 20, a diameter is 10 mm or less, for example, about 1-5 mm, for example, and axial length (from the front-end | tip part 21c to the rear-end part 22b) is 10 mm or less, for example, about 1-5 mm. The diameter and axial length can be 2 mm or less.

  The holder 20 includes a lens holding unit 21 that holds the objective lens 13 and an image sensor holding unit 22 that holds the image sensor 14. Thereby, the objective lens 13 and the image sensor 14 can be held by the integral holder 20. Examples of the material of the holder 20 include plastic, ceramics, and metal. Among these, plastic is preferable because high-precision molding is easy. It is preferable that the holder 20 has a light shielding property.

The objective lens 13 includes a lens portion 13a disposed on the optical axis, and an outer ring portion 13b provided on the outer peripheral side of the lens portion 13a. The objective-side surface of the objective lens 13 has a flat surface 13c. Since the aperture stop 12 and the lens cover 11 also have flat surfaces, the surfaces of the objective lens 13, the aperture stop 12 and the lens cover 11 can be easily matched.
The holder 20 also has a lens abutting portion 21a as an abutting portion that can abut the objective lens 13 (specifically, the outer ring portion 13b) from the objective side. This facilitates the alignment of the objective lens 13 with respect to the holder 20 in the z direction.

  An aperture stop 12 is disposed closer to the object side than the lens abutting portion 21a. The aperture stop 12 is made of, for example, a metal plate such as SUS, and can be shielded from light around the opening 12a. The outer periphery 12c of the aperture stop 12 may have a notch 12b in a part of the circumferential direction. Thereby, even when the outer peripheral portion 12c of the aperture stop 12 is in contact with the inner surface portion 21b of the lens holding portion 21 and the light shielding range is widened, the handling of the aperture stop 12 is facilitated.

  In the imaging module 10 of the present embodiment, the range shielded by the outer peripheral portion 12c of the aperture stop 12 is wider than the inner diameter of the lens abutting portion 21a. Thus, even when external light passes between the outer peripheral portion 12c of the aperture stop 12 and the inner surface portion 21b of the lens holding portion 21, stray light is generated by the lens abutting portion 21a. it can. That is, the range of light entering from the outside to the image sensor 14 side through the objective lens 13 is limited by the diaphragm 25 constituted by the inner diameter of the lens abutting portion 21a. Thereby, the flare and ghost by the stray light resulting from the external light which injected from the location which is not the opening part 12a of the aperture stop 12 can be prevented.

In addition to the objective lens 13 and the aperture stop 12, the lens cover 11 can be accommodated in the lens holding portion 21 of the holder 20. In order to suppress an increase in the dimension of the imaging module 10 in the z direction, adhesion of foreign matter, and the like, it is preferable that the front end surface 11a of the lens cover 11 is as low as possible between the front end 21c of the lens holding unit 21.
The front end surface 11a of the lens cover 11 is flat, and is not affected by the refractive index change of the surrounding medium when the imaging module 10 is used in a liquid such as water or in the air. An image can be formed. For this reason, it is easy to use both in liquids such as body fluids and in the air such as gases, and is also suitable for medical use. The material of the lens cover 11 is preferably a biocompatible material, such as glass.
In the present specification, the lens cover 11, the aperture stop 12, and the objective lens 13 may be collectively referred to as “object-side members 11 to 13”.

  An adhesive 16 is provided between the inner surface portion 21 b of the lens holding portion 21 and the outer peripheral portion of the objective side members 11 to 13. Thereby, the objective side members 11 to 13 can be fixed to the lens holding portion 21 of the holder 20, and airtightness can be provided. Since the lens abutting portion 21a has a structure capable of aligning the objective lens 13 (specifically, the outer ring portion 13b) also in the xy direction, alignment in the xy direction is directed toward the lens abutting portion 21a. This can be done easily by simply inserting the objective lens 13.

  The holder 20 has a structure in which a cross-sectional area is enlarged between the objective lens 13 and the image pickup device 14 in an inclined or stepped manner toward the image pickup device 14 on the inner surface in contact with the space 27 where no lens is arranged (this book). In the embodiment, it has an enlarged diameter portion 26). Thus, for example, even when a part of the light incident on the image sensor 14 is reflected by the surface portion 14a of the image sensor 14, the reflected direction is controlled when the reflected light is incident on the diameter enlargement unit 26 and the diaphragm unit 25. Re-incident to the image sensor 14 can be suppressed by diffusion, absorption, and the like of the reflected light. Thereby, the flare and ghost by the stray light resulting from reflected light can be prevented. The diameter-enlarging portion 26 may be a cylindrical surface having an inner diameter larger than that of the diaphragm portion 25 or a tapered surface whose diameter increases toward the image sensor 14.

2 and 3 show the appearance of the imaging module 10 on the imaging element side. Examples of the imaging element 14 include solid-state imaging elements such as CMOS and CCD. The imaging element 14 has a front surface portion 14a and a back surface portion 14b on both sides in the z direction, and has a side surface portion 14c around the xy direction.
On the surface portion 14 a side of the imaging element 14, there is an imaging area (not shown) that is a light receiving part of the imaging element 14. The imaging region is a region for obtaining an image signal from external light, and has, for example, a photoelectric conversion unit. A part or all of the surface portion 14a of the image sensor 14 has a light-transmitting region in which external light can reach the imaging region.
A light-transmitting protective layer such as a cover glass may be provided on the surface portion 14a of the imaging element 14 in order to protect the imaging region. The surface portion 14a (or cover glass or the like) may be subjected to antireflection (layer, treatment, etc.), but omitting antireflection is preferable from the viewpoint of cost reduction.

  The back surface portion 14 b of the image sensor 14 is exposed at the rear end portion 22 b of the image sensor holding portion 22. Wiring such as a flexible wiring board and an electric cable may be connected to the back surface portion 14b. The back surface portion 14b of the image sensor 14 may be substantially flush with the rear end portion 22b of the image sensor holding portion 22, and the back surface portion 14b may protrude rearward from the rear end portion 22b.

  The image sensor holding portion 22 of the holder 20 includes a slit portion 23 having a structure penetrating in the radial direction from the inner surface side to the outer surface side of the holder 20. The slit part 23 is provided in the side surface part 14c of the image pick-up element 14 in the position where the corner | angular part 14d protruded in the direction perpendicular | vertical to an optical axis is arrange | positioned. Thereby, the outer diameter of the holder 20 can be set to be approximately equal to or less than the diagonal length that is the longest portion of the image sensor 14 in the xy direction. The diameter of the imaging module 10 can be reduced by minimizing the outer diameter of the holder 20 with respect to the dimensions of the imaging element 14.

The image sensor holding portion 22 of the holder 20 has an inner frame portion 24 having a shape along the side surface portion 14 c of the image sensor 14. The image sensor 14 can be aligned in the xy direction simply by fitting the side surface portion 14 c of the image sensor 14 to the inner frame portion 24. For this reason, alignment in the xy direction can be easily performed simply by inserting the image sensor 14 into the image sensor holder 22.
When the holder 20 is made of plastic (resin), since the inner frame portion 24 is divided in the circumferential direction by the slit portion 23, an external force acting on the side surface portion 14c from the lateral direction (inside the inner frame portion 24). Durability against generated stress) is greatly improved.

  An adhesive 17 is filled between the side surface portion 14 c of the image sensor 14 and the inner frame portion 24 of the holder 20. The adhesive 17 may be filled in the slit portion 23. Thereby, the image sensor 14 can be easily fixed to the holder 20. The adhesive 17 is preferably made of a light-shielding material so that leakage light does not enter from the slit portion 23.

Further, the holder 20 has an imaging element abutting portion 22a as an abutting portion capable of abutting the imaging element 14 (specifically, the surface portion 14a) in the z direction. This facilitates the alignment of the image sensor 14 with respect to the holder 20 in the z direction. Further, since the adhesive 17 for fixing the image sensor 14 to the holder 20 does not leak inside the image sensor abutting portion 22a in the radial direction, the adhesive 17 can be prevented from leaking into the imaging region.
In the abutting, a spacer 15 or an adhesive 17 may be interposed between the image sensor abutting portion 22a and the image sensor 14, and the spacer 15 is omitted and the image sensor 14 is abutted with the image sensor abutting portion. You may make it contact 22a directly.

In the present embodiment, the spacer 15 is provided between the surface portion 14a of the image sensor 14 and the image sensor abutting portion 22a. The spacer 15 is annular, and has an opening 15 a including at least the range of the imaging region (imaging surface) in the surface portion 14 a of the imaging element 14. The spacer 15 may have a spring property, a buffer property, or the like in order to suppress a mechanical influence on the surface portion 14 a of the image sensor 14. The spacer 15 is preferably light-shielding, and is made of a metal material, for example.
When a focal length shift occurs due to finish variation among lots of the objective lens 13 (or the lens unit 33 of the second embodiment described later), the thickness and the number of spacers 15 (0 is acceptable) are adjusted. The focal length deviation can be canceled. Furthermore, even when stray light enters outside the opening 15a, unintended light rays can be absorbed by providing the spacer 15 with a light-shielding property.

  FIG. 4 shows a disassembled state of the imaging module 10. As a method of assembling the imaging module 10, a step of forming the holder 20 having the lens holding portion 21 and the imaging element holding portion 22, a step of inserting the objective side members 11 to 13 from the tip portion 21 c side of the lens holding portion 21, and imaging A method including a step of inserting the image pickup element 14 from the rear end portion 22b side of the element holding portion 22 may be mentioned. The front-rear relationship between the step of inserting the objective side members 11 to 13 into the lens holding unit 21 and the step of inserting the imaging element 14 into the imaging element holding unit 22 is not particularly limited.

  The step of inserting the objective side members 11 to 13 into the lens holding part 21 is performed by inserting the objective lens 13, the aperture stop 12 and the lens cover 11 in this order only from the objective side rather than the lens abutting part 21a. Thereby, the assembly man-hour can be reduced.

  In the step of inserting the image sensor 14 into the image sensor holder 22, the corner 14d of the image sensor 14 is aligned with the position of the slit 23 so that the position of the corner 14d can be visually confirmed. Insertion can be facilitated by avoiding chipping of the portion 14d. Further, as shown in FIG. 5, the adhesive 17 can be injected through the slit portion 23 from the outside in the radial direction of the image sensor holding portion 22.

  As an example of the manufacturing method, after the adhesive 16 is applied to the lens holding part 21 of the holder 20, the objective members 11 to 13 are sequentially inserted into the lens holding part 21, and further, the imaging element 14 is inserted into the imaging element holding part 22. After the insertion, the procedure of injecting the adhesive 17 from the slit portion 23 to the side surface portion 14c of the image sensor 14 can be mentioned.

The objective lens 13 and the image sensor 14 are positioned in the xy direction and the z direction with respect to the lens holder 21 and the image sensor holder 22, respectively. Can be greatly reduced.
In comparison with the case where the image pickup device 14 is inserted after applying an adhesive to the inner surface of the image pickup device holding portion 22, the image pickup device 14 is inserted into the image pickup device holding portion 22 and imaged toward the image pickup device abutting portion 22a. By fixing the imaging element 14 by injecting the adhesive 17 with the element 14 being abutted, the adhesive 17 is less likely to leak onto the surface portion 14a of the imaging element 14, and on the surface portion 14a of the imaging element 14 The error in the z direction due to the variation in the thickness of the adhesive 17 adhering to can also be reduced.

FIG. 6 shows a cross-sectional view of the imaging module 30 of the second embodiment. FIG. 7 shows a disassembled state of the imaging module 30. The imaging module 30 of the present embodiment has substantially the same configuration as that of the imaging module 10 of the first embodiment, except that a lens unit 33 is used instead of the objective lens 13 of the first embodiment. Therefore, the same components may be denoted by the same reference numerals and redundant description may be omitted. 2, 3 and 5 can be applied in common to the second embodiment.
In the present embodiment, configurations corresponding to the objective-side members 11 to 13 of the first embodiment are the lens cover 11, the aperture stop 12, and the lens unit 33.

  The lens unit 33 has a structure in which the objective lens 32 is fixed to one main surface 31 b of the support plate portion 31. The objective side of the objective lens 32 is a flat surface 32 a in contact with the support plate portion 31. The surface 32b of the objective lens 32 includes a curved surface. The support plate portion 31 is, for example, a glass flat plate, and the main surfaces 31a and 31b on both sides in the z direction are flat surfaces. The objective lens 32 is, for example, a plastic (resin) lens.

  The lens abutting portion 21a is a plane perpendicular to the optical axis, and the lens unit 33 is abutted against the lens abutting portion 21a when the support plate portion 31 contacts the lens abutting portion 21a. Thereby, the alignment of the objective lens 32 with respect to the holder 20 in the z direction can be easily performed.

The side surface portion 31 c of the support plate portion 31 can be aligned in the xy direction by fitting with the inner surface portion 21 b of the lens holding portion 21. For this reason, alignment in the xy direction can be easily performed only by inserting the lens unit 33 toward the lens abutting portion 21a.
On the outer peripheral portion of the objective lens 32, there is a bank portion 34 that holds a gap between the inner surface of the holder 20 (specifically, the inner surface of the diaphragm portion 25). When the lens unit 33 is bonded and fixed to the lens holding portion 21, as shown in FIG. 8, since the adhesive 17 accumulates in the gap in contact with the bank portion 34, the adhesive 17 is prevented from spreading on the surface 32 b of the objective lens 32. can do.

As described above, according to the imaging modules 10 and 30 of the above-described embodiment, the imaging element 14 can be easily fixed or positioned with respect to the holder 20, so that the imaging modules 10 and 30 can be easily reduced in diameter. Since the image sensor 14 is directly positioned with respect to the holder 20, an axial deviation error can be suppressed.
Further, the assembly man-hours can be reduced by inserting the objective side members 11 to 13 and the lens unit 33 only from the objective side of the holder 20.
In addition, since the objective lenses 13 and 32 can be easily fixed or positioned with respect to the holder 20, the lens imaging modules 10 and 30 can be easily reduced in diameter.
Further, the lens abutting portion 21a (diaphragm portion 25) and the diameter enlarging portion 26 prevent flare and ghost caused by stray light, and can suppress a decrease in contrast.
A lens unit with a small diameter and a low profile can be used to deal with flares and ghosts, and there is no need for a complicated structure and number of parts. Therefore, the material cost and assembly man-hours are reduced, yield is improved, and the imaging module 10 , 30 can be reduced.

  Although the present invention has been described based on the preferred embodiments, the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments, and various modifications, for example, addition of constituent elements, are possible without departing from the spirit of the present invention. , Omissions, substitutions, and other changes are possible.

  In the above-described embodiment, the case where the objective lenses 13 and 32 are configured by a single lens has been exemplified. However, the present invention is not limited thereto, and for example, two or more lenses are arranged on the optical axis, It is also possible to configure. Examples of the lens that can be used for the configuration of the objective lens include one or more of a plano-convex lens, a plano-concave lens, a biconvex lens, a biconcave lens, and a concave / convex lens.

  An endoscope including the imaging module of the present invention and a medical device equivalent thereto can be suitably used because it includes an imaging module having a small diameter and a low profile.
