Paper Abstract

Robust reconstruction of coherent speckle images from non- imaged laser speckle patterns in the aperture plane of an optical system requires adequate sampling of the speckle intensity at the focal plane. Although detector size cannot be changed dynamically in the course of an experiment to achieve the necessary sampling in every frame, a measure of speckle size could be used to accept or reject individual frames in post-processing software to improve the final reconstructed image. This paper investigates the use of a speckle size metric to gauge the integrity of speckle sampling in each frame of a series of coherent speckle images. Frames containing inadequate sampling are sorted out of the final reconstructed image. The quality of the final recovery for a variety of targets and imaging conditions are compared for sorted and non-sorted reconstructions.
