Abstract

In previous work, we introduced a dynamic range compression-based technique for image correction using nonlinear deconvolution; the impulse response of the distortion function and the distorted image are jointly transformed to pump a clean reference beam in a photorefractive two-beam coupling arrangement. The Fourier transform of the pumped reference beam contains the deconvolved image and its conjugate. Here we extend our work to spectrally variable dynamic range compression. This approach allows the retrieval of distorted signals embedded in a very high noise environment and does not require one to work with a very high beam ratio as in our previous work. Resolution recovery of blurred noisy images is demonstrated for several different types of image blur.
