Abstract:
The applications of low-light imaging are widespread in areas such as biomedical imaging, remote sensing, ratiometric imaging, lithography, etc. The goal of this work is to develop a radiometrically scaled hybrid RCWT calculator to count the photons detected for such applications. The rigorous computation of different imaging models are discussed. An approach to calibrate the radiometry of the hybrid RCWT model for partially coherent illumination is presented. The diffraction from the object is evaluated rigorously using the hybrid RCWT model. A test bench is set up to validate the radiometrically scaled simulations. In all the cases considered, simulation and experiment agree within a 40% difference.
