Title: Autofocus and fusion using nonlinear correlation

In this work a new algorithm is proposed for auto focusing and images fusion captured by microscope's CCD. The proposed algorithm for auto focusing implements the spiral scanning of each image in the stack f(x, y){sub w} to define the V{sub w} vector. The spectrum of the vector FV{sub w} is calculated by fast Fourier transform. The best in-focus image is determined by a focus measure that is obtained by the FV{sub 1} nonlinear correlation vector, of the reference image, with each other FV{sub W} images in the stack. In addition, fusion is performed with a subset of selected images f(x, y){sub SBF} like the images with best focus measurement. Fusion creates a new improved image f(x, y){sub F} with the selection of pixels of higher intensity.
