Remote imaging by transfer of coherence functions through optical fibers

Paper Abstract

The spatio-temporal coherence function (STCF) associated with the wavefield from a scene conveys all information required to produce an image of that scene. Through the use of dynamic coding/decoding masks a STCF can be converted in form so as to allow the image-forming information to be conveyed via a single optical fiber to a remote viewing site. A general theory relating to STCF transfer is presented, and a Young's fringe-based discussion of why the scheme is plausible is presented.
