Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Fresnelets are wavelet-like base functions specially tailored for digital holography applications. We introduce their use in phase-shifting interferometry (PSI) digital holography for the compression of such holographic data. Two compression methods are investigated. One uses uniform quantization of the Fresnelet coefficients followed by lossless coding, and the other uses set portioning in hierarchical trees (SPIHT) coding. Quantization and lossless coding of the original data is used to compare the performance of the proposed algorithms. The comparison reveals that the Fresnelet transform of phase-shifting holograms in combination with SPIHT or uniform quantization can be used very effectively for the compression of holographic data. The performance of the new compression schemes is demonstrated on real PSI digital holographic data.
