A scanner characterization method is proposed to estimate spectral reflectance from scanner responses by using an optimized adaptive estimation method. In contrast to our previous study [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A21, 1125 (2004)], this method considers the weighting of training samples. It is demonstrated that the color accuracy of this method is only slightly(More)
In multispectral imaging system, one of the most important tasks is to accurately reconstruct the spectral reflectance from system responses. We propose such a new method by combing three most frequently used techniques, i.e., wiener estimation, pseudo-inverse, and finite-dimensional modeling. The weightings of these techniques are calculated by minimizing(More)
In multispectral imaging, Wiener estimation is widely adopted for the reconstruction of spectral reflectance. We propose an improved reflectance reconstruction method by adaptively selecting training samples for the autocorrelation matrix calculation in Wiener estimation, without a prior knowledge of the spectral information of the samples being imaged. The(More)
Two methods for colorimetric characterization of color scanner are proposed based on the measures of perceptual color difference error. The first method is used to minimize the total color differences between the actual and predicted color samples. The second one, which is a generalization of the existing cubic-root pre-processing technique, derives the(More)
A multispectral camera acquires spectral color images with high fidelity by splitting the light spectrum into more than three bands. Because of the shift of focal length with wavelength, the focus of each channel should be mechanically adjusted in order to obtain sharp images. Because progressive adjustment is quite time consuming, the clear focus must be(More)
Our study deals with color synthesis of a three-dimensional object in an image; i.e., given a single image, a target color can be accurately mapped onto the object such that the color appearance of the synthesized object closely resembles that of the actual one. As it is almost impossible to acquire the complete geometric description of the surfaces of an(More)
A conductive polymer, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS), was modified with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) in solution state, together with sub-sequential thermal treatment of its spin-coated film. The electrical conductivity increased by more than three orders of magnitude improvement was achieved. The mechanism for the(More)
