Spectral imaging is a fundamental diagnostic technique with widespread application. Conventional spectral imaging approaches have intrinsic limitations on spatial and spectral resolutions due to the physical components they rely on. To overcome these physical limitations, in this paper, we develop a novel multi-spectral imaging modality that enables higher spatial and spectral resolutions. In the developed computational imaging modality, we exploit a diffractive lens, such as a photon sieve…

A Parametric Estimation Approach to Instantaneous Spectral Imaging

Numerical simulation results indicate that the physical parameters can be estimated with the same order of accuracy as state- of-the-art slit spectroscopy but with the added benefit of an instantaneous, 2D field-of-view.

Spectral Zooming and Resolution Limits of Spatial Spectral Compressive Spectral Imagers

A rigorous discretization model for this architecture is developed, based on a light propagation analysis across the imager, that allows the recovery of spectrally detailed datacubes by physically displacing the mask toward the spectral plane.
