Previous research presented by the author and others into maximum-likelihood image restoration for incoherent imagery is extended to consider problems of blind deconvolution in which the impulse response of the system is assumed to be unknown. Potential applications that motivate this study are wide-field and confocal fluorescence microscopy, although applications in astronomy and infrared imaging are foreseen as well. The methodology incorporates the iterative expectation-maximization… CONTINUE READING
