This paper provides an overview of field curvature aberration correction. It is known that for sharp imaging on a flat surface the Petzval sum must be zero or nearly so. However, current lenses for mobile phones depart from this principle to some extent. We provide an insightful discussion about some mechanisms for the correction of field curvature aberration.
