Enhancing the image resolution in a single-pixel sub-THz imaging system based on compressed sensing

ERMEYDAN, Esra Sengun

Compressed sensing (CS) techniques allow for faster imaging when combined with scan architectures, which typically suffer from speed. This technique when implemented with a subterahertz (sub-THz) single detector scan imaging system provides images whose resolution is only limited by the pixel size of the pattern used to scan the image plane. To overcome this limitation, the image of the target can be oversampled; however, this results in slower imaging rates especially if this is done in two-dimensional across the image plane. We show that by implementing a one-dimensional (1 -D) scan of the image plane, a modified approach to CS theory applied with an appropriate reconstruction algorithm allows for successful reconstruction of the reflected oversampled image of a target placed in standoff configuration from the source. The experiments are done in reflection mode configuration where the operating frequency is 93 GHz and the corresponding wavelength is lambda = 3.2 mm. To reconstruct the image with fewer samples, CS theory is applied using masks where the pixel size is 5 mm x 5 mm, and each mask covers an image area of 5 cm x 5 cm, meaning that the basic image is resolved as 10 x 10 pixels. To enhance the resolution, the information between two consecutive pixels is used, and over-sampling along 1-D coupled with a modification of the masks in CS theory allowed for oversampled images to be reconstructed rapidly in 20 x 20 and 40 x 40 pixel formats. These are then compared using two different reconstruction algorithms, TVAL3 and l(1)-MAGIC. The performance of these methods is compared for both simulated signals and real signals. It is found that the modified CS theory approach coupled with the TVAL3 reconstruction process, even when scanning along only 1-D, allows for rapid precise reconstruction of the oversampled target.

Efficient computation of 2D point-spread functions for diffractive lenses
Ayazgok, Suleyman; Öktem, Sevinç Figen (The Optical Society, 2020-01-10)
Diffractive lenses, such as Fresnel zone plates, photon sieves, and their modified versions, have been of significant recent interest in high-resolution imaging applications. As the advent of diffractive lens systems with different configurations expands, the fast and accurate simulation of these systems becomes crucial for both the design and image reconstruction tasks. Here we present a fast and accurate method for computing the 2D point-spread function (PSF) of an arbitrary diffractive lens. The method i...
Advanced Design of Schottky Photodiodes in Bulk CMOS for High Speed Optical Receivers
Orsel, Ogulcan Emre; Erdil, Mertcan; Kocaman, Serdar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-02-01)
This paper provides theoretical insight on how circular Schottky photodiodes in bulk CMOS can be optimized for certain integrated receiver applications. An optimal photodiode size is analytically demonstrated and the effects of a metal plate reflector are simulated using a transfer-matrix method, both for frontside and backside illumination. Finally, a distributed circuit model is presented, which deviates from the classical lumped model for large photodiodes or sheet resistances. The presented methodologie...
QR-RLS algorithm for error diffusion of color images
Unal, GB; Yardimci, Y; Arikan, O; Cetin, AE (SPIE-Intl Soc Optical Eng, 2000-11-01)
Printing color images on color printers and displaying them on computer monitors requires a significant reduction of physically distinct colors, which causes degradation in image quality. An efficient method to improve the display quality of a quantized image is error diffusion, which works by distributing the previous quantization errors to neighboring pixels, exploiting the eye's averaging of colors in the neighborhood of the point of interest. This creates the illusion of more colors. A new error diffusi...
Deep iterative reconstruction for phase retrieval
Isil, Cagatay; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Koc, Aykut (The Optical Society, 2019-07-10)
The classical phase retrieval problem is the recovery of a constrained image from the magnitude of its Fourier transform. Although there are several well-known phase retrieval algorithms, including the hybrid input-output (HIO) method, the reconstruction performance is generally sensitive to initialization and measurement noise. Recently, deep neural networks (DNNs) have been shown to provide state-of-the-art performance in solving several inverse problems such as denoising, deconvolution, and superresoluti...
Object reconstruction from in-line Fresnel holograms without explicit depth focusing
Ozgen, MT; Tuncer, Temel Engin (SPIE-Intl Soc Optical Eng, 2004-06-01)
We propose two computational techniques for extracting object cross-sectional shape information from digitized in-line Fresnel holograms that do not require prior knowledge of object depths but recover relative depth information along the way. The first algorithm is applicable to hologram segments involving a single particle only. It is based on estimating Fourier transform magnitude and phase of the particle from those of the hologram segment. The second algorithm conducts a joint inverse filtering and dep...
