Paper Abstract

A computer software is proposed in order to determine the centroids of the spots in a Hartmann pattern or Hartmanngrams. The software was developed using algorithms for segmentation of images, which are techniques used in digital image processing. Centroid determination for a Shack-Hartmann pattern is the key point to obtain reliable results. We focus in obtaining good centroid determination for Hartmanngrams under conditions of high noise. The proposed algorithms are the essential part of this work, as they are morphological algorithms, which mainly are modifications of the weighted averaging algorithm. They have several advantages, such as, the adjustment to the shape of every spot of the Hartmanngram and that it is an interactive and automatic software. Although the software is more complete and reliable than other techniques and algorithms, since it can analyze complicated pictures of Hartmanngrams and measure the centroids of the spots.
