Discuss about Gaussian High Pass and Gaussian Low Pass Filter.

Gaussian Lowpass Filters:

The form of these filters in two dimensions is given by

where, D(u, v) is the distance from the origin of the Fourier transform.

(c) Filter radial cross sections for various values of Do.

σ is a measure of the spread of the Gaussian curve. By letting σ = Du, we can express the filter in a more familiar form in terms of the notation:

where Do is the cutoff frequency. When D (u, v) = Do, the filter is down to 0.607 of its maximum value.

Gaussian Highpass Filters:

The transfer function of the Gaussian highpass filter (GHPF) with cutoff frequency locus at a distance Do from the origin is given by

The figure 6.2 shows a perspective plot, image, and cross section of the GHPF function.

Even the filtering of the smaller objects and thin bars is cleaner with the Gaussian filler.
