Abstract

We present a simple and effective method for denoising phase patterns based on a discrete model. The proposed filtering method transforms the image denoising problem to solving the energy diffusion problem of a system with complex-valued fields. We establish an appropriate cost function that uses the discrete form of complex-valued Markov random fields. The attractiveness of the proposed filtering method includes three points: the first is that the filtering process can be easily implemented using an iterative method, the second is that 2 π phase jumps are well preserved, and the third is its little computational effort. The performance of the proposed method is demonstrated by simulated and experimentally obtained phase patterns.
