Image formation model for photon sieves

Öktem, Sevinç Figen

A photon sieve, modification of a Fresnel zone plate, has been recently proposed to achieve higher resolution imaging and spectroscopy at UV and x-ray wavelengths. In this paper, we present Fresnel imaging formulas that relate the output of a photon sieve imaging system to its input, originating from either a coherent or incoherent extended source. By using a well-known model for the zone plate, we also provide approximations to these imaging formulas, which are more efficient to compute. These imaging relations for both photon sieve and the approximate model are crucial for effectively analyzing and solving the inverse problems that arise from the new imaging modalities enabled by photon sieves. We illustrate this by formulating the forward model of the image formation process for an application in polychromatic imaging.


Image fusion for improving spatial resolution of multispectral satellite images
Ünlüsoy, Deniz; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
In this study, four different image fusion techniques have been applied to high spectral and low spatial resolution satellite images with high spatial and low spectral resolution images to obtain fused images with increased spatial resolution, while preserving spectral information as much as possible. These techniques are intensity-hue-saturation (IHS) transform, principle component analysis (PCA), Brovey transform (BT), and Wavelet transform (WT) image fusion. Images used in the study belong to Çankırı reg...
Time-resolved microscopy of femtosecond laser filaments in fused quartz
Kadan, Viktor; Blonskyi, Ivan; Pavlov, Ihor (2022-02-01)
Detailed picture of continuous shape evolution of femtosecond laser pulse has been recorded directly in the process of filament formation in fused silica using time-resolved polarization microscopy with similar to 70 fs temporal resolution. The main stages of the pulse transformation (temporal self-compression and splitting, formation of conical wave) have been studied. The maximum temporal compression has been found to be achieved by the leading subpulse after the time splitting event. It was found that th...
Radiation characteristics of slot excited cylindrical antenna coated by layered anisotropic material
Aydin, O; Hizal, A (1996-05-16)
This paper presents the radiation characteristics of a slot antenna on a conducting circular cylinder coated with an anisotropic layer. Full wave equations in a cylindrical anisotropic medium are derived from transversal field equations using Fourier series in azimuth /spl phi/ and Fourier transform in axial coordinate z. The solution is expressed in terms of state transition matrices which are evaluated numerically. Formulation can be easily generalized to multilayered cylindrical structures. Effects of ch...

Ayazgök, Suleyman; Öktem, Sevinç Figen (2019-08-22)
Snapshot spectral imaging enables to reconstructspectral images from a multiplexed single-shot measurement.Since an inversion is required to form the spectral images com-putationally, quantitative characterization of their performanceis essential to optimize the design. In this paper, we analyze theoptimal design of a snapshot spectral imaging technique. Thissnapshot multi-spectral imaging technique uses a diffractive lenscalled generalized photon sieve, and vari...
Hypothesis based detection of building with rectilinear projection in satellite images using shade and color information
Güdücü, Volkan; Halıcı, Uğur (2010-12-01)
A new hypothesis based method for detecting rectilinear buildings, that have ground projection made of combination of rectangles, in satellite images is proposed. While the hypotheses are established using the lines detected in the satellite images they are verified by using shadow and color segmentation information. The proposed method is implemented in MATLAB and tested in satellite images of different urban areas. The experimental results obtained are encouraging. ©2010 IEEE.
