We propose a maximum a posteriori blind deconvolution approach using a Huber–Markov random-field model. Compared with the conventional maximum-likelihood method, our algorithm not only suppresses noise effectively but also significantly alleviates the artifacts produced by the deconvolution process. The performance of this method is demonstrated by computer simulations.
