Using the concepts of two-dimensional Hubert transform and analytic signal, we construct a new quaternion wavelet transform (QWT). The QWT forms a tight frame and can be efficiently computed using a-2-D dual-tree filter bank. The QWT and the 2-D complex wavelet transform (CWT) are related by a unitary transformation, but the former inherits the quaternion(More)
The dual-tree quaternion wavelet transform (QWT) is a new multiscale analysis tool for geometric image features. The QWT is a near shift-invariant tight frame representation whose coefficients sport a magnitude and three phases: two phases encode local image shifts while the third contains image texture information. The QWT is based on an alternative theory(More)
We develop a quaternion wavelet transform (QWT) as a new multiscale analysis tool for geometric image features. The QWT is a near shift-invariant, tight frame representation whose coefficients sport a magnitude and three phase values, two of which are directly proportional to local image shifts. The QWT can be efficiently computed using a dual-tree filter(More)
We describe a terahertz imaging system that uses a single pixel detector in combination with a series of random masks to enable high-speed image acquisition. The image formation is based on the theory of compressed sensing, which permits the reconstruction of a N-by-N pixel image using much fewer than N 2 measurements. This approach eliminates the need for(More)
We describe a novel, high-speed pulsed terahertz (THz) Fourier imaging system based on compressed sensing (CS), a new signal processing theory, which allows image reconstruction with fewer samples than traditionally required. Using CS, we successfully reconstruct a 64 x 64 image of an object with pixel size 1.4 mm using a randomly chosen subset of the 4096(More)
We extend the wavelet transform to handle multidimensional signals that are smooth save for singularities along lower-dimensional manifolds. We first generalize the complex wavelet transform to higher dimensions using a multidimensional Hilbert transform. Then, using the resulting hypercomplex wavelet transform (HWT) as a building block, we construct new(More)
We design and implement a multipixel spatial modulator for terahertz beams using active terahertz metamaterials. Our first-generation device consists of a 4 ϫ 4 pixel array, where each pixel is an array of subwavelength-sized split-ring resonator elements fabricated on a semiconductor substrate, and is independently controlled by applying an external(More)
