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

The plenoptic function is a ray-based model for light that includes the color spectrum as well as spatial, temporal, and directional variation. Although digital light sensors have greatly evolved in the last years, one fundamental limitation remains: all standard CCD and CMOS sensors integrate over the dimensions of the plenoptic function as they convert photons into electrons; in the process, all visual information is irreversibly lost, except for a two-dimensional, spatially-varying subset - the common photograph. In this state of the art report, we review approaches that optically encode the dimensions of the plenpotic function transcending those captured by traditional photography and reconstruct the recorded information computationally.
