  • Patent number: 11181805
    Abstract: A lighting system includes a light source having a broad emission spectrum, a spatial light modulator configured to modulate one or more of phase and amplitude of light irradiated from the light source to a target object, and a detector configured to detect light intensity being reflected from the target object. Additionally, the lighting system includes circuitry configured to divide an emission spectrum of light irradiated from a light source into a plurality of wavelength ranges, measure irradiated light formed with a first wavelength range to the target object, calculate a transmission matrix based on the measurement, calculate a set of other transmission matrixes, calculate a set of patterns for generating a plurality of localized illuminations, drive the spatial light modulator by a modulation signal which forms an irradiation pattern, and scan the plurality of localized illuminations on the target object.

  • Publication number: 20210250479
    Abstract: An adaptive lighting apparatus includes a light source, a spatial light modulator, and processing circuitry. Further, the processing circuitry is configured to drive the spatial light modulator by a modulation signal for irradiating patterns for generating one or more localized illuminations, scan the one or more localized illuminations on the target object based on the patterns, and calculate, in advance, the patterns so that light intensity of the one or more localized illuminations is enhanced on a virtual target located at a predetermined distance and without a scattering medium.

  • Publication number: 20200241136
    Abstract: An image capture apparatus includes a light source, a modulator configured to modulate light irradiated from the light source to a target object, an imaging device configured to generate image data by capturing one or more images of the target object, and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to drive the modulator by a first modulation signal, the first modulation signal being for irradiating a first pattern, drive the modulator by a second modulation signal, the second signal being for irradiating a second pattern, wherein the first pattern and the second pattern are irradiated alternately, modulate reflected light from the target object, the reflected light from the target object being detected at a lock-in detector, and generate an image composed of image data from the reflected light of the plurality of localized illuminations.
