Abstract
This paper examines a super-exponential method for blind deconvolution. Possibly non- minimal phase point spread functions (PSFs) are identified. The PSF is assumed to be low pass in nature. No other prior knowledge of the PSF or the original image is necessary to assure convergence of the algorithm. Results are shown using synthetically degraded satellite images in order to demonstrate the accuracy of the PSF estimates. In addition, radiographic images are restored with no knowledge of the PSF of the x-ray imaging system. These experiments suggest a promising application of this algorithm to a variety of blur identification problems.
