Enhanced imaging in turbulent conditions with OKO StillI system

11 January 2012

OKO extends the capabilities of modern imaging systems by introducing a purely software-based system for image stabilization, object tracking, frame integration and multi-frame deconvolution, based on multi-frame processing. It offers an almost real time enhanced imaging through turbulent and wavy media. The system works with live video sequences fed via DirectShow (webcam) interface, or from a CMOS or CCD camera. To get the impression, please watch the recording at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1FXxDWaljQ.

Stirring of light!

Optimal light absorption with 'stirred' light

Light must be converted into usable energy if it is to be used, for example, in televisions or solar cells. This can be a different colour of light or, in the case of solar cells, electrical energy. Yet how do you do this as efficiently as possible? In a FOM Programme researchers will 'stir' light waves through nanophotonic media to optimise the absorption and processing of light waves. The team is made up of theoretical, experimental and applied researchers from five Dutch universities and the FOM Institute AMOLF.
