Micromachines, Vol. 12, Pages 1181: Hybrid Sparsity Model for Fast Terahertz Imaging
Micromachines doi: 10.3390/mi12101181
In order to shorten the long-term image acquisition time of the terahertz time domain spectroscopy imaging system while ensuring the imaging quality, a hybrid sparsity model (HSM) is proposed for fast terahertz imaging in this paper, which incorporates both intrinsic sparsity prior and nonlocal self-similarity constraints in a unified statistical model. In HSM, a weighted exponentiation shift-invariant wavelet transform is introduced to enhance the sparsity of the terahertz image. Simultaneously, the nonlocal self-similarity by means of the three-dimensional sparsity in the transform domain is exploited to ensure high-quality terahertz image reconstruction. Finally, a new split Bregman-based iteration algorithm is developed to solve the terahertz imaging model more efficiently. Experiments are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
