A single image deblurring approach based on a fractional order dark channel prior

Xiaoyuan Yu, Wei Xie, Jinwei Yu

The dark channel prior has been successfully applied to solve the blind deblurring problem on different scene images. Since the dark channel of the blurry-noise image is similar to that of the corresponding clear image, the sparsity of the dark channel is less effective for image blind deblurring. Inspired by the fact that a fractional order calculation can inhibit the noise and preserve the texture information of the image, a fractional order dark channel prior is proposed for image deblurring in this paper. It is appropriate for kernel estimation where input images and intermediate images are processed by using a fractional order dark channel prior. Furthermore, the non-convex problem is solved by the half-quadratic splitting method, and some metrics are used for deblurring image quality assessment. Finally, quantitative and qualitative experimental results show that the proposed method achieves state-of-the-art results on synthetic and real blurry images.
