Moiré effects that occur in the superposition of aperiodic layers such as random dot screens are known as Glass patterns. Unlike classical moiré effects between periodic layers, which are periodically repeated throughout the superposition, a Glass pattern is concentrated around a certain point in the superposition, and farther away from this point it fades out and disappears. I show that Glass patterns between aperiodic layers can be analyzed by using an extension of the Fourier-based theory… Expand

It is shown how the approach also allows us to synthesize correlated random screens that give in their superposition dot trajectories having any desired geometric shapes, and it is explained why suchdot trajectories are visible only in superpositions of aperiodic screens but not in superPOSitions of periodic screens.

Security authentication using the reflective glass pattern imaging effect.
By using the reflective-type configuration, the micro-optic system can be realized on a thinner substrate and is immune to external stain due to its flat working plane and a stringent 2D alignment requirement should be imposed. Expand
Short-time Fourier transform method for online glass ream inspection
AMoiré method based on the theory of superposition shadow is proposed, which can magnify the distortion effectively without increasing the system complexity, and a STFT method is presented to analyze the distortion according to the characteristics of Moiré fringe pattern, suitable for online glass ream inspection.

Glass patterns in the superposition of random line gratings
Moire effects ('Glass patterns') that occur in the superposition of correlated random layers have long been studied. However, only little is known of Glass patterns which occur in the 1D random case:Expand

This work studies the behavior of such moires, and compares it with analogous results from the periodic case, and shows that all cases, periodic or not, obey the same basic mathematical rules, in spite of their differ- ent visual properties. Expand
Glass patterns as moiré effects: new surprising results.
New research results show that if one chooses appropriate dot shapes for each of the two random dot patterns, while keeping the random dot locations in both layers identical, it is possible to synthesize in the superposition a Glass pattern having any desired shape and intensity profile. Expand
