Abstract

We present a triangular-range-intensity profile (RIP) spatial-correlation method for 3D range-gated imaging with a depth of super resolution. In this method, spatial sampling volumes with triangular-RIPs are established by matching laser-pulse width and sensor gate time, and then depth information collapsed in gate images can be reconstructed by spatial correlation of overlapped gate images corresponding to sampling volumes. Compared with super-resolution depth mapping under trapezoidal-RIPs, range accuracy and precision are improved, and a large range fluctuation due to noise disturbance is smoothed by noise suppression under triangular-RIPs. In this paper, a proof experiment is demonstrated with a range precision 2.5 times better than that obtained under trapezoidal-RIPs.
