Paper Abstract

In a previous paper we presented initial results for sub-detector-pixel imaging in the mid-wave infra-red (MWIR) using an imager equipped with a coded-aperture based on a re-configurable MOEMS micro-shutter. It was shown in laboratory experiments that sub-pixel resolution is achievable via this route. The purpose of the current paper is to provide detail on the reconstruction method and to discuss some challenges which arise when imaging real-world scenes. The number of different mask patterns required to achieve a certain degree of super-resolution is also discussed. New results are presented to support the theory.
