In this paper we present two methods for non-uniformity correction of imaging array detectors based on neural networks, both of them exploit image properties to supply lack of calibrations while maximizing the entropy of the output. The first method uses a self-organizing net that produces a linear correction of the raw data with coefficients that adapt continuously. The second method employs a kind of contrast equalization curve to match pixel distributions. Our work originates from Silicon detectors but the treatment is general enough to be applicable to many kinds of array detectors like those used in Infrared imaging or in high energy physics.

Abstract

In this paper we present two methods for non-uniformity correction of imaging array detectors based on neural networks, both of them exploit image properties to supply lack of calibrations while maximizing the entropy of the output. The first method uses a self-organizing net that produces a linear correction of the raw data with coefficients that adapt continuously. The second method employs a kind of contrast equalization curve to match pixel distributions. Our work originates from Silicon detectors but the treatment is general enough to be applicable to many kinds of array detectors like those used in Infrared imaging or in high energy physics.
