Abstract

The effects of imaging with coherent light are investigated and related to the parameters of an imaging system. Theoretical results are presented to describe the imaging parameters and the coherent field effects. The experimental results show the coherent field effects of edge ringing and shifting, speckling and field-of-view limitation. Incoherent results are presented in some cases for comparison.
