Papers

  1. Research paper (international conference proceedings) Joint Image Encryption Based on Phase Decomposition Technique Katsuhiro Uno, Hoang Hoa Tien Dung Proceedings of the 4th IIAE International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Image Processing 2016 The Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers 192-198 2016/09/08 Novel techniques for image encryption, which is based on a phase decomposition of the complex amplitude, and for ecryption with an interferometry were proposed. The phase decomposition was successfully performed by retarding or progressing the random phase along the pixel brightness information of the image that should be encrypted. The obtained images that were encrypted were purely random phase images with constant amplitude, so that no one could see the meaning of the image. The hidden image could be recovered only by the interferometric technique. The decrypted image was exactly the same image as the original one without any noise. Our technique can be applied not only to binary images but also to grayscale images. We confirmed our technique in the computer simulation.
  2. Research paper (scientific journal) Joint Visual Cryptography by Speckle Pattern Illumination Katsuhiro Uno, Hoan Hoa Tien Dung Jounal of the Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers 4/ 1, 26-32 2016/01/25 2187-8811 10.12792/JIIAE.4.26 We used for the first time the speckle pattern created by the scattered laser beam from rough surfaces in order to perform the visual secret sharing (visual cryptography), which is alternative material for random grid pattern. Segmentation and binarization of the speckle pattern was performed for making one share embedding secret image. Reconstruction of the secret image was successfully achieved by the product between the share and the original speckle pattern.

Research paper (scientific journal) Joint Dual Focus Diffractive Optical Element with Extended Depth of Focus Katsuhiro Uno, Isao Shimizu Optical Review 21/ 5, 668-675 2014 A dual focus property and extended depth of focus were verified by a new type of diffractive lens displaying on liquid crystal on silicon devices.
  5. Research paper (scientific journal) Joint Rotation- and Size-Invariant Object Identification System Using the Liquid Crystal on Silicon Device Katsuhiro UNO, Yuta KAMIKOZAWA, Isao SHIMIZU Optical Review 21/ 3, 404-409 2014 We propose a shape discrimination technique using the optical matched spatial filter, which gives an identical result against randomly scattered objects of the same shape but different rotation and scale change. The main idea in this study is to apply optical coordinate transformation, which transforms rotation and scale change including a linear shift into translation, not to the objects themselves but to their Fourier spectra. Thus, rotation and scale change as well as the linear shift can be processed with the same optical matched spatial filter. In addition, we built a two-wavelength system for simultaneous processing of the optical matched spatial filter and optical coordinate transformation. In this system, both Fourier transform and the coordinate transformation were implemented merely by displaying computer-generated holograms (CGH) on the liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) devices, resulting in a compact lensless system.
