Image transfer through a scattering medium
Springer London, Limited, 1991 - Computers - 349 pages
This is the first text that both provides a detailed theoretical background of image generation and detection in scattering media and acts as a useful handbook for solutions to practical problems. The fundamentals are presented within the radiation transfer theory (calculation of light fields in media interacting with coherent or solar radiation) and applied to, for example, the optics of ocean and stochastic clouds, and the design of imaging systems (photographic, holographic, biological). Emphasis is placed on the propagation of CW and pulsed laser beams. The parameters influencing image quality are discussed in detail. The exposition of the fundamentals will be useful for theoreticians, yet, as a practical solutions book, it is primarily addressed to experimentalists and engineers.
