Generalized Image Acquisition and Analysis

A Mathematical Model and Calibration Procedure for Galvanometric Laser Scanning Systems

Laser galvanometric scanning systems are commonly used in various fields such as three dimensional scanning, medical imaging, material processing, measurement devices and laser display systems. The systems of such kind suffer from distortions. On top of that they do not have a center of projection, which makes it impossible to use common projector calibration procedures. The paper presents a novel mathematical model to predict the image distortions caused by galvanometric mirror scanning systems. In addition, we describe a calibration procedure for recovering its intrinsic and extrinsic parameters.

Abstract

Multiplexing is a common technique for encoding highdimensional image data into a single, two-dimensional image. Examples of spatial multiplexing include Bayer patterns to capture color channels, and integral images to encode light fields. In the Fourier domain, optical heterodyning has been used to acquire light fields. In this paper, we develop a general theory of multiplexing the dimensions of the plenoptic function onto an image sensor. Our theory enables a principled comparison of plenoptic multiplexing schemes, including noise analysis, as well as the development of a generic reconstruction algorithm. The framework also aides in the identification and optimization of novel multiplexed imaging applications.
