Paper Abstract

Structured illumination has been utilized to super-resolve microscopic objects and provide topographic information in computer vision applications. Motivated by the achievements in these fields and leveraging techniques found in astronomical sparse aperture systems, an approach is developed to super-resolve macroscopic objects in typical real world scenarios. The challenges of super-resolving uncontrolled 3D environments are addressed. An approach is presented which enables the collection of 3D topographic information while super-resolving. These techniques use incoherent illumination to resolve spatial detail in an intensity image. For indirect imaging scenarios, this approach is adapted with structured coherent illumination to super-resolve phase at a distance.
