Image Analysis

Details on how to process images taken by the ISDI CMOS Sensor to recover the average light output in each scintillator sheet.

  • First, the 21 images taken by the CMOS sensor must be corrected for non-linearity effects in the photon-electron conversion. The MATLAB script linear_corr_tiff.m does this.
    • The correct full-well mode must be selected in the script, typically high full-well is chosen for its superior linearity.
    • The script loops over each pixel in the 21 images and applies a correction using cubic interpolation of the linearity data (linearity_high.txt). A corrected version of each image is saved.
  • The 21 corrected images are then averaged using, which outputs a single image.
    • On MacOS, this may require ImageMagick, which can be installed with MacPorts: sudo port install ImageMagick
  • To apply background subtraction and corrections for non-linearity in scintillator light output, the MATLAB script edit_runs.m is run.
    • This requires a corrected/averaged background and shoot-through measurements (front and/or back).
    • Important for background and shoot-through to have the same full-well mode as the measurement. Similar spot size for the shoot-through and measurement is also desirable.
    • The script outputs a .txt file containing a column of data, representing the light output in each sheet in arbitrary units. This can be used in the fitting procedure.
