Multispectral demosaicing using intensity-based spectral correlation

Abstract

Single-sensor color cameras, which classically use a color filter array (CFA) to sample RGB channels, have recently been extended to the multispectral domain. To sample more than three wavelength bands, such systems use a multispectral filter array (MSFA) that provides a raw image in which a single channel level is available at each pixel. A demosaicing procedure is then needed to estimate a multispectral image with full spectral resolution. In this paper, we propose a new demosaicing method that takes spectral and spatial correlations into account by estimating the level for each channel. Experimental results show that it provides estimated images of better quality than classical methods.
