Abstract

We initially present a liquid crystal (LC) based creation procedure for full Stokes polarization image sensors. The proposed method enables an arrangement of both micron scale LC polarization rotators and λ/4 retarders. These can be integrated over a CMOS polarization image sensor. Also, the DoFP polarization image sensors seize polarization properties at each edge by grabbing some part of the polarization data and results in a changing instantaneous field of view (IFoV). To recover the missing polarization, interpolation methods are employed. We propose residual interpolation for DoFP image sensors, and compare the results with the already adopted algorithms. We tested our algorithm for underwater image. The results show that residual interpolation performs better than other methods in terms of visual and mean square error.
