Abstract

We present the results of the phase-diversity algorithm applied to simulated and laboratory data. We show that the exact amount of defocus distance does not need to be known exactly for the phase-diversity algorithm on extended scene imaging. We determine, through computer simulation, the optimum diversity distance for various scene types. Using laboratory data, we compare the aberrations recovered with the phase-diversity algorithm and those measured with a Fizeau interferometer that uses a He-Ne laser. The two aberration sets agree with a Strehl ratio of over 0.9. The contrast of the recovered object is found to be ten times that of the raw image.
