Deblurring

Deblurring is the process of removing blurring artifacts from images, such as blur caused by defocus aberration or motion blur. The blur is typically modeled as the convolution of a (sometimes space- or time-varying) point spread function with a hypothetical sharp input image, where both the sharp input image (which is to be recovered) and the point spread function are unknown. This is an example of an inverse problem. In almost all cases, there is insufficient information in the blurred image to uniquely determine a plausible original image, making it an ill-posed problem. In addition the blurred image contains additional noise which complicates the task of determining the original image. This is generally solved by the use of a regularization term to attempt to eliminate implausible solutions. This problem is analogous to echo removal in the signal processing domain. Nevertheless, when coherent beam is used for imaging, the point spread function can be modeled mathematically. By proper deconvolution of the point spread function and the image, the resolution can be enhanced several times.
