Resolution enhancement technology

Resolution enhancement technology

:"Ret is also the abbreviation for the constellation Reticulum."

Resolution enhancement technology (RET) is a form of image processing technology used to manipulate dot characteristics popular among laser printer and inkjet printer manufacturers. Closely related RET techniques are also used in VLSI photolithography manufacturing technology, in particular in relation to 90 nanometre technology.

Resolution refers to the sharpness of image detail, smoothness of curved lines, and the faithful reproduction of an image. In both cases, RET uses pre-compensation of the image in order to try to mitigate the effects of the printing process.

Among the major issues in RET in VLSI technology are the fundamental properties of a wave: amplitude, phase, and direction.
