Paper Abstract

This paper presents experimental results obtained with Ziva Corp.’s image processing approach called Computational Imaging for Aberrated Optics (CIAO), which is a multi-image deconvolution algorithm. CIAO enhances the performance of imaging systems by accommodating wavefront error. This accommodation allows the designer to improve system performance or reduce system cost. CIAO has been successfully tested in a wide field of view imaging system, which has significant aberrations. These experimental results show CIAO restoration of high quality images from highly blurred images. Specifically, CIAO allows the pupil to open <50% beyond the diffraction limited aperture, which allows more light capture and higher cut-off resolution.
