Abstract

A laser radar system for three-dimensional (3-D) lensless imaging is analyzed in theory and experiment. 3-D imaging is accomplished by making use of the relationship between the angular and wavelength dependence of the scattered light and an object’s 3-D Fourier transform. The concept is demonstrated by obtaining a 3-D image of an extended object by using a charge-coupled device detector array and an argon-ion laser with a tunable intracavity étalon.
