Abstract

In a previous paper [Opt. Express 10, 663 (2002)], the current author presented a principle and a technique allowing the transformation of a random relationship between the complex amplitudes at two wave fronts into a selective one. As the current paper shows, the same principle can be readily implemented to transmit one-dimensional images through a single multimode optical fiber.
