Cameras and scanning systems used in applications involving fluorescence microscopy, white-light interferometry OCT, or aerial photography need to be high resolution. When resolution needs to be increased, there are only a few options. The camera can have the size of its recording chip increased, or the pixel size can be decreased. Both of these options are time consuming, expensive, and can even sometimes result in a decrease in overall image quality. This application note discusses a technique called pixel sub-stepping. This technique can be applied to increase the resolution of imaging/sensor chips in a camera without increasing the recording chips size, or decreasing the pixel size.
