In Applied optics

We explore the contribution of convolutional neural networks to correcting for the effect of the point spread function (PSF) of the optics when applying ghost imaging (GI) combined with deep learning to identify defect positions in materials. GI can be accelerated by combining GI and deep learning. However, no method has been established for determining the relevant model parameters. A simple model with different kernel sizes was built. Its accuracy was evaluated for data containing the effects of different PSFs. Numerical analysis and empirical experiments demonstrate that the accuracy of defect identification improved by matching the kernel size with the PSF of the optics.
