Paper Abstract

The goal of phase retrieval is to recover the phase information from intensity distribution which is an important topic in optics and image processing. The algorithm based on the transport of intensity equation only need to measure the spatial intensity of the center plane and adjacent light field plane, and reconstruct the phase object by solving second order differential equations. The algorithm is derived in the coherent light field. And the partially coherent light field is described more complex. The field at any point in the space experiences statistical fluctuations over time. Therefore, traditional TIE algorithms cannot be applied in calculating the phase of partially coherent light field. In this thesis, the phase retrieval algorithm is proposed for partially coherent light field. First, the description and propagation equation of partially coherent light field is established. Then, the phase is retrieved by TIE Fourier transform. Experimental results with simulated uniform and non-uniform illumination demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method in phase retrieval for partially coherent light field.
