    Pseudo-Random Speckle Illumination Patterns Allow for High-Resolution Imaging

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers at the University of Tokyo have demonstrated the use of a multimode fiber (MMF) in combination with an integrated optical phased array (OPA) chip for single-pixel imaging in potential biomedical applications. The technology could allow for smaller devices with which to perform pseudo-random speckle pattern imaging applications such as ultra-thin endoscopy or in vivo neural imaging.

    According to Taichiro Fukui, a Ph.D. student in the group, previous research indicated that illuminating a target using random speckles, rather than a focused spot, enhances the spatial resolution of an imaging process. “This is because unlike a focused spot, the random speckle illumination consists of interference patterns that contain…
