Abstract

Imaging through scattering media such as fog is a problem with few known viable solutions. Holographic techniques have been demonstrated successfully in the laboratory, but their usefulness is often limited in field conditions by the requirement of a separate coherent reference beam. In this paper, an interferometric imaging technique that utilizes a grating interferometer is presented. Experimental results obtained with this technique show substantial improvement in image contrast over that obtained via direct imaging.
