  • English
  • Every autumn semester
  • The aim of the course is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge on the generation of and information extraction from multi-spectral images in different wavelength regions and on different spatial scales. Basic knowledge on image processing should be attained.

  • Molecular physics and molecular spectroscopy, multispectral image registration, image processing, orientation on multivariate analysis, detector systems in the laboratory and in space, image processing systems. Space-based remote analysis and astronomical image analysis. Multi-spectral imaging for medical diagnostics and environmental studies.

    Three laboratory sessions are included:

    Digital visible and IR imaging

    Image processing of data from the LANDSAT and SPOT satellites

    Fluorescence imaging for medical and environmental diagnostics

    Demonstrations include: Astronomy imaging, electron- and sweep microscopies, PIXE X-ray imaging, MRI imaging

    Project, consisting of writing comprehensive reports from literature references

Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • understand how techniques, common to all fields can be used to extract physical and chemical information from images

    have a basic knowledge on how spectroscopy allows to characterize materials and phenomena

    have basic knowledge on image analysis and multi-variate methods

Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to assess which spectral region is useful for a particular task

    be able to assess which characteristics are useful for a definite characterization of an image pixle

    be able to work with image analysis tools

    have an increased competence for presenting in writing an accomplished project.

    have an increased experience in working in groups of two or four persons towards a common goal.

    have improved knowledge on how to extract relevant data from literature references (project).

Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to judge the power of multispectral imaging techniques to extract physical and chemical information from images recorded in different wavelength bands
