Abstract

It is experimentally demonstrated that lens aberrations can have detrimental effects in speckle photography. These effects include not only loss of speckle correlations and subsequent halo fringes, but also distortion of the halo fringes that can lead to false information about object motion.

FIG. 1

Speckle halo and its corresponding lens aperture. The photographic structure in the specklegram that diffracts light to the points ±1 in (a) results from the recording of interference of ray pairs such as those indicated in (b).

FIG. 2
FIG. 2

Speckle halos obtained from a specklegram recorded by a well-corrected copy lens at 1:1 magnification. The object has moved helically between exposures. Four halos from four regions in the field of view are shown: (a) top center, (b) top right, (c) center, and (d) center right.

FIG. 3
FIG. 3

Speckle halos obtained from a speeklegram recorded by a normal camera objective at 1:1 magnification. Object motion is the same as in the previous figure, and a, b, c, and d denote the same regions of the field of view.
