Abstract

A technique of restoration of smeared photographic images by white light optical processing is described. It is well known that the image quality and the degree of restoration obtainable by coherent optical processing techniques are severely limited by artifact noise. This new technique offers a lower artifact noise and possibly a higher degree of restoration. We stress that this incoherent restoration technique applies to 2-D objects, although the operation to be performed must be 1-D.
