Paper Abstract

Simple centroiding, cross-correlation and triple correlation techniques have been applied to the imaging of randomly translating and rotating objects at very low light levels. The results of a computer simulation show that satisfactory reconstructions can be obtained using the cross-correlation technique at photon levels on the order of 0.2 photons per pixel for pure random translation or rotation, and on the order of 0.5 photons per pixel for both random translation and rotation, with only a few hundred frames in each case.
