Many applications require a computer representation of 2D shape, usually described by a set of 2D points. The challenge of this representation is that it must not only capture the characteristics of the shape but also be invariant to relevant transformations. Invariance to geometric transformations , such as translation, rotation and scale, has received(More)
We address the problem of 6D pose estimation of a textureless and shiny object from single-view 2D images, for a bin-picking task. For a textureless object like a mechanical part, conventional visual feature matching usually fails due to the absence of rich texture features. Hierarchical template matching assumes that few templates can cover all object(More)
We address two-dimensional shape-based classification, considering shapes described by arbitrary sets of unlabeled points, or landmarks. This is relevant in practice because, in many applications, the points describing the shapes come from automatic processes, e.g., edge detection, thus without labels. Rather than attempting to compute point correspondences(More)
In image analysis, many tasks require representing two-dimensional (2D) shape, often specified by a set of 2D points, for comparison purposes. The challenge of the representation is that it must not only capture the characteristics of the shape but also be invariant to relevant transformations. Invariance to geometric transformations, such as translation,(More)
The nanoscale interactions between adjacent layers of layer-by-layer (LBL) films from poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and azodye Brilliant Yellow (BY) have been investigated, with the films employed for optical storage and the formation of surface-relief gratings. Using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, we identified interactions involving SO3-(More)
The luminescence spectra of milk containing rhodamine 6G are shown to exhibit typical signatures of random lasing when excited with 532 nm laser pulses. Experiments carried out on whole and skim forms of two commercial brands of UHT milk, with fat volume concentrations ranging from 0 to 4%, presented lasing threshold values dependent on the fat(More)
