Deep learning-based hyperspectral image super-resolution (SR) methods have achieved great success recently. However, there are two main problems in the previous works. One is to use the typical three-dimensional convolution analysis, resulting in more parameters of the network. The other is not to pay more attention to the mining of hyperspectral image spatial information, when the spectral information can be extracted. To address these issues, in this paper, we propose a mixed convolutional network (MCNet) for hyperspectral image super-resolution. We design a novel mixed convolutional module (MCM) to extract the potential features by 2D/3D convolution instead of one convolution, which enables the network to more mine spatial features of hyperspectral image. To explore the effective features from 2D unit, we design the local feature fusion to adaptively analyze from all the hierarchical features in 2D units. In 3D unit, we employ spatial and spectral separable 3D convolution to extract spatial and spectral information, which reduces unaffordable memory usage and training time. Extensive evaluations and comparisons on three benchmark datasets demonstrate that the proposed approach achieves superior performance in comparison to existing state-of-the-art methods.
