Paper Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging systems effectively collect information across the spectral and two spatial dimensions by employing three main components: the front lens, the light-diffraction element and a camera. Imperfections in these components introduce spectral and spatial dependent distortions in the recorded hyperspectral image. These can be characterized by a 3D response function that is subsequently used to remove distortions and enhance the resolution of the recorded images by deconvolution. The majority of existing characterization methods assume spatial and spectral separability of the 3D response function. In this way, the complex problem of 3D response function characterization is reduced to independent characterizations of the three orthogonal response function components. However, if the 3D response function is non-separable, such characterization can lead to poor response function estimates, and hence inaccurate and distorted results of the subsequent deconvolution-based calibration and image enhancement. In this paper, we evaluate the influence of the spatial response function non-separability on the results of the calibration by deconvolution. For this purpose, a novel procedure for direct measurement of the 2D spatial response function is proposed along with a quantitative measure of the spatial response function non-separability. The quality of deconvolved images is assessed in terms of full width at half maximum (FWHM) and step edge overshoot magnitude observed in the deconvolved images of slanted edges, images of biological slides, and 1951 USAF resolution test chart. Results show that there are cases, when nonseparability of the system response function is significant and should be considered by the deconvolution-based calibration and image enhancement methods.
