In this course the student will learn about 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 attention is paid to the acquisition of multidimensional information. The student will gain basic understanding of both hardware of specific detectors and transport of the information from these detectors to computer memory and representation in computer memory. Based on the gained knowledge the student will be able to choose appropriate detector for a particular application and set suitable acquisition parameters.
Student will be able to:
formulate basic principles of digital image acquisition;
describe characteristics of the most common imaging instruments;
describe mutual interdependencies between the basic features of imaging instruments or settings;
suggest suitable configurations for a given image acquisition task;
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.
