Abstract

Several new digital reconstruction techniques for coded aperture imaging are developed which are especially applicable to uniformly redundant arrays (URAs). The techniques provide improved resolution without upsetting the artifact-free nature of URAs. Two new techniques are described; one which allows self-supporting URAs and one which avoids (or at least mitigates) a blur which has been associated with previous correlation analyses. Each of the methods and their resolution improvements are demonstrated with reconstructions of a laser-driven compression. Particular emphasis has been placed on the special sampling required of the encoded picture and the decoding function if artifacts are to be avoided. For large URAs, it is shown that another new digital technique, periodic decoding, is much faster. Periodic decoding does produce artifacts, but they usually are negligible.
