Technical Optics for imaging processing (EN)

May 30th 2016

Instructor: Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne (HCI, University of Heidelberg)

A puzzling variety of optical components are available to acquire images. Often the required knowledge is not available to use these components in an optimal way for a given application.

• Do I need an expensive special lens or is a standard lens sufficient?
• Which parameters of a lens are the most critical ones, which are not relevant?
• What resolution is sufficient for my application?
• How do I adapt the lens in the best way to a given image sensor?


Short Biography of Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne: Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne is professor of physics and computer science at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) and the Institute for Environmental Physics of Heidelberg University since 1994. End of 1995, he founded the Heidelberg Image Processing Forum, a continuous education activity, which has become the major contact forum between research and machine vision industry in Germany. Since 2008, he is the coordinating director of the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing HCI, an Industry-on-Campus Project including now eight company members (Bosch Germany, Bosch India, Sony Germany, Carl Zeiss, Bayer, and the SMEs Heidelberg Engineering, Silicon Software, and PCO). Since 2008 he is also deputy director of the IWR and chairs the EMVA 1288 standardization committee for camera characterization. He serves as a member of the Advisory Councils for the Center for Computing and Communication Technology (TZI) at Bremen University, the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance, and the Karlsruhe School of Optics and Photonics (KSOP). He is also a member of the jury for the ZEISS Innovation Award.
