Abstract
A novel image processing method is presented that allows to obtain images with maximal contrast by means of fusing a series of images which were acquired under different illumination constellations. For this purpose, the notion of illumination space is introduced, and strategies for sampling this space are discussed. It is shown that the signal of interest contained in a physical texture often would be lost if standard image acquisition methods were used. In contrast to this, the presented approach shows a robust and reproducible way to obtain high-contrast images containing the relevant information for subsequent processing steps.
