The Gibbs ringing artifact is another very common and extremely important artifact to understand (Figure 3).
A Maximum likelihood approach is described by Senungjoon Yang et al (2001), to alleviate the ringing artifact removal problem.
The Architecture of the proposed ringing artifact reduction technique is presented in Section 2.
This reduces the ringing artifact, which is an undesired, yet common occurrence.
Their paper starts with presenting the ringing artifact introduced by the Richardson-Lucy algorithm.
Although Cho's method [7] can remove motion without ringing artifact, it has unnatural discontinuities and intensity saturation due to the bilateral filtering as shown in Figure 5(c).
The contribution of the proposed research is twofold: (i) a novel motion PSF estimation method is proposed by minimizing the motion trajectory error based on a priori probability distribution, and (ii) a noniterative adaptive image restoration algorithm is proposed based on the local statistics of image to reduce ringing artifacts and noise amplification.
They perform unsatisfactorily in moderate compression, for the ringing artifact is most visible in moderate compression.
Although [11] and [16] are able to address overall deblurring performance, their deblurred results also contain some ringing artifacts. The deblurred results of the proposed algorithm contain clearer details and fewer artifacts in comparison with other deblurring methods.
This speeds up the task of optimizing settings for detail restoration, background protection and suppression of ringing artifacts around stars.
Moreover, when focusing the interferometer on a certain plane ringing artifacts occur as a result of unfocused levels which influence focused planes.
