deconvolution

(dee-kon-vŏ-loo -shŏn) The recovery (‘unsmearing’) of data, such as an astronomical image, that has been convolved (see convolution) with a response function, such as a telescope beam. The process is nearly always carried out on a computer using one or more deconvolution algorithms (see aperture synthesis). It can greatly improve the fidelity of images, particularly when the convolving function is well defined. The process is used extensively in aperture synthesis to remove artifacts generated by the synthesized beam and greatly improved the early performance of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Core features of the system include: the SPD-M30A photodiode array detector, which offers high sensitivity and resolution, achieving a low noise level through the adoption of the total reflection capillary flow cell, high- brightness lamp, and optimized signal processing circuit; the Intelligent Dynamic Range Extension Calcular (iDReC), a iDReC function in the SPD-M30A that extends the dynamic range so low-concentration and high-concentration samples can be analyzed in a single injection; Intelligent Peak Deconvolution Analysis (i-PDeA), which extracts a single peak from co-eluted peaks and quantitates it by exploiting the difference in spectra between each compound; temperature-controlled optics; and automated solvent blending.
