Abstract

The third-order ghost imaging with the second-order intensity correlation is theoretically and experimentally demonstrated. The resolution and visibility of the reconstructed image are discussed, and the relationship between resolution and visibility is analyzed. The theoretical results show that a tradeoff exists between the visibility and resolution of the reconstructed image; the better the image resolution, the worse the image visibility. Numerical simulations are carried out to verify this theory, and a ghost imaging experiment is conducted to validate our calculations. The experimental results agree with the theoretical predictions.
