    Incremental PCA algorithm for fringe pattern demodulation
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2022-04-11) Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Alonso Fernández, José; Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Vargas Balbuena, Javier
    This work proposes a new algorithm for demodulating fringe patterns using principal component analysis (PCA). The algorithm is based on the incremental implantation of the singular value decomposition (SVD) technique for computing the principal values associated with a set of fringe patterns. Instead of processing an entire set of interferograms, the proposed algorithm proceeds in an incremental way, processing sequentially one (as minimum) interferogram at a given time. The advantages of this procedure are twofold. Firstly, it is not necessary to store the whole set of images in memory, and, secondly, by computing a phase quality parameter, it is possible to determine the minimum number of images necessary to accurately demodulate a given set of interferograms. The proposed algorithm has been tested for synthetic and experimental in ter ferograms showing a good performance.

    Adaptive spatiotemporal structured light method for fast three-dimensional measurement
    (Spie-Soc Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2006-10) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Crespo Vázquez, Daniel; Vargas Balbuena, Javier; Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio
    We present a high-speed 3-D spatiotemporal shape measurement technique by means of structured light. Current methods use a constant number of images that do not take into account the available temporal continuity of the measured object. That is, they focus on acquiring and processing as quickly as possible a fixed number of images to solve for the correspondence problem and later obtain the 3-D shape by triangulation. The number of images used imposes the use of some spatial support. The major contribution of our research is a new spatiotemporal scheme that, depending on the object's movement, adaptively uses the maximum number of projected images consistent with the local temporal continuity, therefore solving the correspondence problem with the minimum possible spatial support for each position. This is achieved by the use of a hybrid color pattern composed of an analog sinusoidal periodic code in the red channel and a digital binary spatial code in the blue channel that is cyclically displaced. No subpixel calculation is used and it is possible to implement error correction strategies that make the method fast and reliable, enabling dynamic online 3-D measurement of objects in movement.

    Deflectometric method for the measurement of user power for ophthalmic lenses
    (The Optical Society of America, 2010-09-20) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio; Alonso Fernández, José; Vargas Balbuena, Javier
    This paper presents a deflectometric technique to measure the power of an ophthalmic lens as perceived by the user. It is based on a calibrated camera acting as a pinhole in order to measure ray deflection along the same path as the visual axis when the lens is held in front of the eye. We have analyzed numerically the accuracy of our technique, and it has been compared experimentally with a commercial "lens mapper" and with the real user power calculated from the measured topography of the lens surfaces to state the reliability and accuracy of the presented technique.

    Enhancement of Cryo-EM maps by a multiscale tubular filter
    (The Optical Society of America, 2022-01-31) Vargas Balbuena, Javier; Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio; Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Alonso Fernández, José
    We present an approach to enhance cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) postprocessed maps based on a multiscale tubular filter. The method determines a tubularness measure locally by the analysis of the eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix. This information is used to enhance elongated local structures and to attenuate blob-like and plate-like structures. The approach, thus, introduces a priori information in the reconstructions to improve their interpretability and analysis at high-resolution. The proposed method has been tested with simulated and real cryo-EM maps including recent reconstructions of the SARS-CoV-2. Our results show that our methods can improve obtained reconstructions.
