Resumen:
Investigadores de una universidad alemana han desarrollado un proceso asistido por ordenador para la corrección de imágenes con luz parcialmente coherente que agiliza y simplifica la óptica adaptativa convencional. La óptica adaptativa es una tecnología empleada para mejorar el rendimiento de sistemas ópticos reduciendo el efecto de las distorsiones de frente de onda. Este nuevo proceso mejora los resultados de imágenes astronómicas con telescopios de alta resolución o imágenes con microscopios de alta precisión. La universidad ofrece este nuevo proceso de mejora de imágenes bajo acuerdos de licencia.

New process for image enhancement by means of correction of wave optical image defects
Summary:
Researchers from a German University invented a computer aided process for correction of images with partially coherent light, which fastens and simplifies conventional adaptive optics. The new process improves the results of astronomical imaging with high-resolution telescopes or imaging with high-precision microscopes. The University is offering this novel image enhancement process under license agreement.
Description:
A research group from a University in Northern Germany developed a new computer aided process which fastens and simplifies conventional adaptive optics. Adaptive optics (AO) is a technology used to improve the performance of optical systems by reducing the effect of wave front distortions.
The invention relates to a numerical correction process for digital images, for which at least partially coherent light has passed through imaging optics with predetermined image defects. The image defects above all affect the path length of the light components passed through and lead to a distortion of the light wave fronts.
Conventional image enhancement processes for incoherent light are based solely on measured light intensities and cannot take the interference occurring with spatially coherent light into consideration. A wave front reconstruction is intrinsically required for this to first determine the image defects and then compensate for them. As a result an astigmatic (defocused) image can be generated with focus and without distortion from the defective image. The new process improves the results of adaptive optics used for :
- astronomical imaging with high-resolution telescopes
- medical application (as retinal imaging with high-precision microscopes)
- high performance laser
- laser cutting appliance

The University has applied European and worldwide patents (EP and PCT patents) for this invention. To open up the market the researches are offering their novel image enhancement process worldwide under license agreement. They are open for partners from industry and research.
Advantages and Innovations:
- The new computer aided image enhancement process improves conventional adaptive optics as it takes the interference occurring with spatially coherent light into consideration and generates a focused image without distortion from the defective image.
- The new image enhancement process increases the results of optical systems used in astronomy, medical and laser technology.
