Experimental results are shown for an integrated computational imaging system with a phase-coded aperture. A spatial light modulator works as a phase screen that diffracts light from a point object into a uniformly redundant array (URA). Excellent imaging results are achieved after correlation processing. The system has the same depth of field as a diffraction-limited lens. Potential applications are discussed.
