Abstract

We present an optical architecture for the laser optical feedback imaging (LOFI) technique that makes it possible to avoid the effect of the optical parasitic reflections introduced by the optical components located between the laser source and the studied object. These reflections damage phase and amplitude information contained in the images. This phenomenon is a leading problem that strongly limits the LOFI performance for weak feedback detection. Consequently, it is essential to be able to limit or avoid the effect of these parasitic reflections to reach the optimal LOFI performance.
