Abstract

An imaging scheme through scattering media in which parametric image amplification is used is presented. An image of a resolution chart through a solution of latex microspheres with an attenuation of 22 mean free paths is obtained with a resolution of 20 µm. The evolution of the signal-to-noise ratio with respect to the medium attenuation is studied and compared with a rough modeling of the imaging process.
