Imaging Lunch: Understanding Image Acquisition


Event details

Date 20.09.2023
Hour 11:0013:00
Speaker Dr Edward Andò  Dr Florian Aymanns 
Category Conferences - Seminars
Event Language English

Our team of experts from the Image Analysis Hub will illustrate the basics of scientific image acquisition, working live around a real scientific camera.

They will teach attendees a simple but robust model of how an entire camera system works, which can be used to interpret most imaging systems. They will define resolution and pixel size, discuss the hardware of the pixelated light sensor, gain, colour imaging, saturation, the sources of poisson and gaussian noise in the system, readout times, optics and sources of blur.

The objective is to give attendees insights and resources on how to think critically about most types of image acquisition systems and make basic hardware selection choices.
