Paper Abstract

Speckle interferometric imaging techniques using image power spectra to obtain calibrated image amplitudes are contaminated by noise biases inherent to the detectors themselves. This noise bias contribution is non-linear for detectors in a conventional image amplitude detection mode (used for bright objects--over 10^5 photons/sec--such as SN1987A, for example). This paper presents our successes in modelling this non-linear bias contribution with iterative minimization techniques.
