A new algorithm has been developed for performing blind deconvolution on degraded images. The algorithm naturally preserves the nonnegative constraint on the iterative solutions of blind deconvolution and can produce a restored image of high resolution. Furthermore, benefiting from the multiplicative form, the algorithm is free from the instability of numerical computation. Results of applying the algorithm to simulated and real degraded images are reported.
