Paper Abstract

Based on previous researches, we construct a pseudo-thermal light ghost imaging system suited for remote imaging applications. By using pulsed pseudo-thermal light, the transmitted power is improved to ghost imaging long distant targets. By using imaging lens system, the path lengths of reference and signal light need not keep equal, as in lensless ghost imaging system, thus the transmitter, receiver, and correlator circuit can be integrated and keep compact. Furthermore, the revolution is improved by reducing the sizes of speckles. And the number of imaging frames is decreased (thus reduced the image-reconstruct time) and the signal-noise-ratio of ghost image is improved by compressed sensing. Based on the constructed experimental system, we implemented ghost imaging of a target at about 30m range.
