It has been found that after the camera system has been submerged in water found in a borehole, that an image flare forms in the corners of the recorded image. Robertson Geo collaborated with CPE to help understand the source of this image flare and develop a method by which it could be removed from the recorded image.
Together, CPE and Robertson Geo explored the source of the image flare and investigated several solutions to removing it. The result of the collaborative project led to an easily implemented solution in which the windows of the camera system are replaced with a window with an anti‐reflection coating. If implemented successfully, the proposed solution of an AR coated window would remove the image flare, whilst being easily integrated into the current camera manufacturing process.
