Abstract

A theoretical investigation of the imaging of extended objects is presented using a Fresnel zone plate as a coded aperture with coherent-optical image reconstruction. Faithful images are obtained only for small objects; artifacts are introduced in the images of large objects. Attempts to increase image fidelity are shown to be only moderately successful.
