Null eigenvector image processing using supplementary information

Hiram E. Hart, Alan H. Schoenfeld

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new image processing technique has been developed which uses an operational eigenvector associated with the null eigenvalue (e.i.o) together with supplementary information to limit non-uniqueness associated with standard methods. A field of e.i.o. corrections is iteratively imposed to minimize the test function(s) reflecting solution agreement with the supplementary information. Computer simulation with supplementary information consisting solely of the global source field strength second moment value results in dramatic improvement over standard methods.
