Abstract
This paper addresses the problem of joint image reconstruction and point spread function PSF) estimation when the PSF of the imaging device is only partially known. To solve this semi-blind deconvolution problem, prior distributions are specified for the PSF and the 3D image. Joint image reconstruction and PSF estimation is then performed within a Bayesian framework, using a variational algorithm to estimate the posterior distribution. The image prior distribution imposes an explicit atomic measure that corresponds to image sparsity. Simulation results demonstrate that the semi-blind deconvolution algorithm compares favorably with previous Markov chain Monte Carlo MCMC) version of myopic sparse reconstruction. It also outperforms non-myopic algorithms that rely on perfect knowledge of the PSF. The algorithm is illustrated on real data from magnetic resonance force microscopy MRFM).
