In general, blind image restoration is an ill-posed inverse problem which recovers the latent image from the blurred observation without any knowledge about the blurring process [9].

This drive to archive the artifacts from the past would be familiar to readers of graphic novels such as Art Spicgelman's Mans, and Weaver's memoir similarly reaches 1hr both recovery and reckoning, where some of the story--about immigration, about race, about identity--is beyond her immediate experience: what she terms "the latent image forever hidden.

In current radiography, latent image of an X-ray exposed object is produced when X-rays strike silver bromide crystals in the film emulsion; they can only absorb a very small amount of X-ray energy to convert them into a latent image.

Computed radiography (CR) was the product name for the first commercial device for making radiographs using the process of photostimulable luminescence (PSL), whereby X-ray energy projected onto a doped crystalline material--the photostimulable phosphor (PSP)--produces a latent image of excited electrons in local potential energy traps.
Following exposure, a reading device uses laser light to release the captured latent image and convert it into a conductive band of green, blue or ultraviolet light called "photostimulable luminescence.
