Abstract

A real-time white light pseudocolor encoding technique for spatial frequency and density encodings is presented. In spatial frequency color coding, the encoding is accomplished by spatial filtering of the color signal spectra, while in density pseudocoloring, the encoding consists of contrast reversal of a color object image. The technique is simple, versatile, and economical to operate, which may offer some practical applications. Because the encoding colors are primarily derived from a white light source, the annoying coherent artifact noise can be substantially reduced. Since the encoding is obtained with a broad spatial band of the signal spectra, this technique offers no apparent resolution loss. We stress that this real-time white light pseudocolor encoding technique may offer several major advantages that previous techniques have offered. Experimental demonstrations of this pseudocolor encoding technique are also provided.
