Spectral imaging, the simultaneous imaging and spectroscopy of a radiating scene, is a fundamental diagnostic technique in the physical sciences with widespread application. Due to the intrinsic limitation of two-dimensional (2D) detectors in capturing inherently three-dimensional (3D) data, spectral imaging techniques conventionally rely on a spatial or spectral scanning process, which renders them unsuitable for dynamic scenes. In this paper, we present a nonscanning (instantaneous) spectral imaging technique that estimates the physical parameters of interest by combining measurements with a parametric model and solving the resultant inverse problem computationally. The associated inverse problem, which can be viewed as a multiframe semiblind deblurring problem (with shift-variant blur), is formulated as a maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation problem since in many such experiments prior statistical knowledge of the physical parameters can be well estimated. Subsequently, an efficient dynamic programming algorithm is developed to find the global optimum of the nonconvex MAP problem. Finally, the algorithm and the effectiveness of the spectral imaging technique are illustrated for an application in solar spectral imaging. Numerical simulation results indicate that the physical parameters can be estimated with the same order of accuracy as state-of-the-art slit spectroscopy but with the added benefit of an instantaneous, 2D field-of-view. This technique will be particularly useful for studying the spectra of dynamic scenes encountered in space remote sensing.

Parameter estimation for instantaneous spectral imaging

Spectral imaging is a fundamental diagnostic technique in physical sciences with widespread application. Conventionally, spectral imaging techniques rely on a scanning process, which renders them unsuitable for dynamic scenes. Here we study the problem of estimating the physical parameters of interest from the measurements of a non-scanning spectral imager based on a parametric model. This inverse problem, which can be viewed as a multi-frame deblurring problem, is formulated as a maximum a posteriori (MAP)...
Computational Spectral Imaging with Photon Sieves
Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Davila, Joseph M. (2016-01-01)
Spectral imaging, the sensing of spatial information as a function of wavelength, is a widely used diagnostic technique in diverse fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, astronomy, and remote sensing. In this paper, we present a novel computational imaging modality that enables high-resolution spectral imaging by distributing the imaging task between a photon sieve system and a computer. The photon sieve system, coupled with a moving detector, provides measurements from multiple planes. Then ...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) methods produce high dimensional representation of cognitive processes under heavy noise due to the limitations of hardware and measurement techniques. In order to reduce the noise and extract useful information from the fMRI data, a sequence of pre-processing techniques, such as smoothing with spatial filters and z-scoring, are used. In this study, we suggest an additional normalization technique based upon a statistical property of fMRI data. We, first, define ...
An Information theoretic representation of brain connectivity for cognitive state classification using functional magnetic resonance imaging
Önal, Itır; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
In this study, a new method for analyzing and representing the discriminative information, distributed in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data, is proposed. For this purpose, a local mesh with varying size is formed around each voxel, called the seed voxel. The relationships among each seed voxel and its neighbors are estimated using a linear regression equation by minimizing the expectation of the squared error. This squared error coming from linear regression is used to calculate various info...

Compressive spectral imaging is a rapidly growing area yielding higher performance novel spectral imagers than conventional ones. Inspired by compressed sensing theory, compressive spectral imagers aim to reconstruct the spectral images from compressive measurements using sparse signal recovery algorithms. In this paper, first, the image formation model and a sparsity-based reconstruction approach are presented for compressive photon-sieve spectral imager. Then the reconstruction performance of the approach...
