Paper Abstract

Recent advances in CCD fabrication techniques have brought on the omnipresence of low cost monochrome CCD cameras. Full color cameras are traditionally made in one of the following two ways: subpixelated color or multiple camera schemes. Each system offers a unique set of tradeoffs. Noteworthy among these is the prohibitive expense of high resolution full color image capture systems. We present a novel technqiue for transforming a single (monochrome) high resolution CCD camera into a full color camera via the use of a fast switching ferroelectric four state color filter. Using all off-the-shelf componentry and color balancing software, we present full color images of stationary scenes constructed from their respective RGB space images.
