Microwave and optical sensor fusion for the shape extraction of three-dimensional space objects
Two sensors that have been proposed for use on a space robot are cameras and radar. Considered individually, neither of these sensors provides enough information for a computer to derive a good surface description of a ...
Inner-shell excitation of atoms for the development of short wavelength laser sources
This work focuses on the feasibility of producing new short wavelength laser sources using inner-shell photoionization or shake-up excitation induced by laser-produced plasma pumping. Laser-produced plasmas effectively ...
Image enhancement of a convex polyhedral object by optimal illumination
It is possible to enhance the image of an object without any image processing by optimal illumination. This thesis first reviews some basic results in radiometry and image formation. Then it proposes a method for optimally ...
