What is Full-Field Imaging?
Full-Field Imaging is any imaging technique in which all pixels of the image are collected at the same time, in parallel
. Full-field imaging is the most common image collection technique - when a picture is taken with a digital camera, it uses this method to capture the image. This is in contrast to the more detailed and time-consuming Scan-Probe
imaging, where information from each position is collected sequentially and then compiled to produce a complete image (see the ScanProbe
page for a more detailed explanation). At FMB, we use full-field imaging to produce images from the x-ray beamline.
Example of Full-Field Imaging in Today's World
Full-Field Imaging is all around us today, from digital cameras to astrological telescopes. Full-field imaging is the most common way to capture an image, and has been around for decades. At FMB, we use full-field imaging to produce images like the one below, and then conduct an image processing technique called a flatfield correction
to produce a clearer image. Our ImageProcessingTechniques
page has information and a tutorial on how to conduct your own flatfield correction, and more.
