Abstract

Isotropic image edge enhancement with high contrast can be achieved using a spiral phase filter (SPF) in a 4f optical system. However, real-time application of edge enhancement with SPF has generally been limited due to the requirement of coherent light or complex phase-shifting operation. In this paper, we demonstrate a real-time image edge enhancement method using a SPF and a graphic processing unit (GPU). By implementing the process of virtual spiral phase filtering on GPU, we are able to speed up the whole procedure by more than 8.3× with respect to CPU processing, and ultimately achieve video rate for megapixel images. In particular, our implementation can achieve higher speedup for more multiple images. These developments are increasing the potential for image edge enhancement of moving objects.
