Paper Abstract

Textured image is considered as the repetition of some primitives with a certain rule of displacement, thus every region in the image has different periodic structure. The segmentation is realized by its self-imaging effect. A series of Fresnel images can be obtained at the fractional Talbot distances depended on the periodicity of the original. All these images are a summation of the Fourier frequency modulated by a phase factor, which related with the fractional Talbot distance. Therefore, these images can be considered as the multichannel Talbot transform of the original image and represent the texture features to a certain extent. By comparing these images, different texture regions are segregated. Theoretical analysis and primitive experimental results are presented.
