Paper Abstract

The depth-of-field (DOF) characteristic of the imaging system with scattering medium is analyzed based on the analytical model of ambiguity function as a polar display of the optical transfer function (OTF) in this paper. It is indicated that the scattering medium can help re-collect more high spatial frequencies, which are normally lost with defocusing in traditional imaging systems. Therefore, the scattering medium can be considered not as an obstacle for imaging but as a useful tool to extend the DOF of the imaging system. To test the imaging properties and limitations, we performed optical experiments in a single-lens imaging system.
