We introduce an image upscaling method that reduces bit errors caused by Nyquist apertures. Nyquist apertures used for higher storage densities generate optical aberrations and degrade the quality of the image that is recorded on the medium. Here, to correct the bit errors caused by the Nyquist aperture, an image upscaling method is used to restore the degraded image in the enhanced spatial frequency domain using its point spread function (PSF) as a restoration filter. The proposed method reduces the bit error rate (BER) significantly and hence allows higher storage densities.
