Abstract

In this paper, we present a new approach capable of working under coherent and incoherent illumination for achieving superresolution by random coding of the object’s angular information. By placing two static random masks in optically conjugate planes inside an aperture-limited imaging setup, one may obtain a transmitted image containing spatial resolution higher than the one obtained without the masks. As the most noticeable fact, the superresolution effect is obtained without imposing any restrictions either in the time domain or in the field-of-view domain but rather only in the dynamic range of the camera device. Experimental verifications for the proposed technique with incoherent illumination with a low numerical aperture (NA) lens are presented.
