Abstract

Ghost imaging through turbulent atmospheres are theoretically studied. Based on the extended Huygens-Fresnel integral, we obtain an analytical imaging formula. The ghost image can be viewed as the convolution of the original object and a point-spread function (PSF). The imaging quality is determined by the size of the PSF. Increasing the turbulence strength and propagation distance, or decreasing the source size, will increase the size of the PSF, and lead to the degradation of the imaging quality.

Geometry of a LGI system through turbulent atmosphere. The source field f(u) is split into two beams by the beam splitter (BS). z 0, z 1 and z 2 are the distances from the source to the unknown object, from the source to the reference detector Dr , and from the object to the test detector Dt , respectively. u, y, x 1, x 2 are the coordinators at the source plane, object plane, reference detector plane and test detector plane.
