Paper Abstract

We describe the fabrication and characterization of a compressive-sampling multispectral imaging (CS-MSI) system that uses single-pixel detectors to capture multiple spectral images concurrently, without mechanical scanning. In particular, we pay special attention to the hardware/software characterization of the CS-MSI system, wherein we discuss the optical realization of the proposed system, measure the effective sensitivity range, and investigate the relationship between the digital micromirror device frame rate and the reconstruction quality. We also compare the imaging performance of the Hadamard-pace variable-density sampling method, which is the CS method implemented with our hardware architecture, with the conventional random sampling method. We propose a compressive-sampling modulation transfer function (CS-MTF) to measure the amplitude response of different spatial frequencies by using different CS methods.
