Spectroscopic imaging has been proved to be an effective tool for many applications in a variety of fields, such as biology, medicine, agriculture, remote sensing and industrial process inspection. However, due to the demand for high spectral and spatial resolution it became extremely challenging to design and implement such systems in a miniaturiz...

We present a new fast compressive spectroscopic technique based on the resonance spectrometric mechanism. This technique uses an appropriately designed Fabry-Perot resonator and a photo-sensor in order to acquire different multiplexed spectral modulations, from which the original signal is reconstructed using a compressive sensing reconstruction al...

In various applications, such as remote sensing and quality inspection, hyperspectral (HS) imaging is performed by spatially scanning an object. In this work, we present a new compressive hyperspectral imaging method that performs along-track scanning. The method relies on the compressive sensing miniature ultra-spectral imaging (CS-MUSI) system, w...

In this Letter, we present a method for hyperspectral imaging of three-dimensional objects. A compressive sensing approach is utilized to remedy the acquisition effort required to capture the large amount of data. The spectral dimension is compressively sensed by means of a liquid crystal-based encoder, and the volumetric data are captured using a...

Recently we introduced a hyperspectral compressive sensing scheme that uses separable projections in the spatial and spectral domains. The separable encoding schemes facilitates the optical implementation, reduces the computational burden dramatically, and storage requirements. Owing to these benefits we have been able to encode the hyperspectral c...

In this paper, we present a new hyperspectral compact camera which is designed to have high spatial and spectral resolutions, to be vibrations tolerant, and to achieve state-of-the-art high optical throughput values compared to existing nanosatellite hyperspectral imaging payloads with space heritage. These properties make it perfect for airborne a...

Several hyperspectral (HS) systems based on compressive sensing (CS) theory have been presented to capture HS images with high accuracy and with a lower number of measurements than needed by conventional systems. However, the reconstruction of HS compressed measurements is time-consuming and commonly involves hyperparameter tuning per each scenario...

Liquid crystal phase retarders are utilized by photonic devices and imaging systems for various applications, such as tunable filtering, light modulation, polarimetric imaging, remote sensing and quality inspection. Due to technical difficulties in the manufacturing process, these phase retarders may suffer from spatial non-uniformities, which degr...
Conference Paper
Compressive spectral imaging with spectral only encoding may exhibit several advantages over spatial-and-spectral encoding methods. We overview compressive spectral imaging systems that use modified Fabry-Perot resonators that perform only spectral encoding.

Hyperspectral (HS) imaging involves the sensing of a scene’s spectral properties, which are often redundant in nature. The redundancy of the information motivates our quest to implement Compressive Sensing (CS) theory for HS imaging. This article provides a review of the Compressive Sensing Miniature Ultra-Spectral Imaging (CS-MUSI) camera, its evo...
Article
In this Letter, we present a new snapshot hyperspectral (HS) camera based on a multi-aperture design. The technique uses an array of modified Fabry–Perot resonators together with a lens array in order to acquire an array of spectrally multiplexed modulated sub-images. Then the original HS image is reconstructed using a compressive sensing reconstru...
Conference Paper
The parametrization of light rays in form of light fields (LF) have become the standard and probably the most common way for the representation, analysis and processing of rays emitted from 3D objects or from 3D displays. Essentially, the LFs are 4D maps representing the spatial and angular distribution of the intensity of the rays. Nowadays, with...
Article
Light fields are four-dimensional parametrizations of rays, extensively used for the representation of the rays emitted from three-dimensional objects. With the increasing availability of spectral imagers, conventional light fields can be augmented by the additional spectral information, yielding a five-dimensional ray parametrization referred to a...

The acquisition of hyperspectral (HS) image datacubes with available 2D sensor arrays involves a time consuming scanning process.

Hyperspectral imaging is a natural field for the implementation of compressive sensing because typical captured hyperspectral datacubes involve large amount of data which is also often very redundant. Compressive hypersepctral systems compress the hyperspectral data already in the acquisition step, thus remedy the severe storage and processing requ...
