An Inverse diffraction method for de-saturation of Extreme Ultraviolet images of solar eruptive eventsMS9

Saturation affects a significant rate of images recorded by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a solar satellite launched by NASA on February 2010. This talk shows an automatic, inverse-problems-based procedure for the recovery of information in the saturation region based on a correlation/inversion analysis of the diffraction pattern associated to the telescope observations. An assessment of its reliability will be performed against images recorded from different eruptive events.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS9 - Innovative models and algorithms for astronomical imaging (2 parts)
