Course objectives
This course is aimed at theoretical and practical aspects of the acquisition of image data and its transformation into digital form. The focus will be on optical systems that are the most common. Special attentiion is paid to the acquisition of multidimensional information. Both hardware of specific detectors and transport of the information from these detectors to computer memory and representation in computer memory will be described.
Syllabus
  • Sources and detectors of light and other types of radiation.
  • Cameras (CMOS, CCD, ICCD, EMCCD) and their properties, automatic focusing.
  • Signal digitization and related protocols, norms and interfaces.
  • Sources of noise and methods of its suppression.
  • Optical system and its components, image formation in optical systems, microscopes and telescopes.
  • Optical errors and their correction.
  • Detection of multidimensional image data and principles of acquisition of spatial (3D), spectral and time dependent information.
  • Physical and optical cuts through the object, stereo-recording, measurement of topography (elevation) of object surface, range imaging, tomographic approaches.
  • Automation of image data acquisition.
