We propose synthetic aperture integral imaging, in which an effectively enlarged aperture (or field of view) is obtained by movement of small integral imaging system. This system substantially increases the field of view and the viewing resolution. The feasibility of our approach is experimentally demonstrated. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time the synthetic aperture technique has been applied to three-dimensional integral imaging.
