Spatially selective mirror for compressive sensing imaging system


Compressive sensing has been identified as a significant technique to reduce the volume of data collected in sensing applications to a minimum. Prior art has empirically demonstrated the effectiveness of a spinning disk for reconstruction of TeraHertZ (THZ) images. Prior empirical data has demonstrated reconstruction artifacts that are associated, in part, with the statistical Probability Density Function (PDF) of the randomly distributed transmission holes in the rotating plate. Empirical demonstration at other wavelengths such as the InfRared (IR) has also been suggested. This document summarizes the statistical requirements for artifact minimization for the previously reported spinning disk system. Consideration is given to the impact of operation at non-THZ wavelengths such as the IR. © 2014 SPIE.
