Images of outdoor scenes often contain degradation due to haze, resulting in contrast reduction and color fading. For many reasons one may need to remove these effects. Unfortunately, haze removal is a difficult problem due the inherent ambiguity between the haze and the underlying scene. Furthermore, all images contain some noise due to sensor… (More)

We present a non-invasive method for recognition of components in a digital CMOS integrated circuit (IC). We use a confocal infrared laser scanning optical microscope to collect multimodal images through the backside of the IC. Individual modes correspond to passive reflectivity measurements or active measurements, such as light-induced voltage alteration.… (More)
The need to detect and localize activity exists in a variety of fields and has broad applications ranging from brain activity for neuroscience to image/video change detection for scene surveillance. In this paper, we introduce a method for localizing activity in integrated circuits (IC) using a laser scanning microscope. Specifically, we develop an activity… (More)
