Abstract

In this Letter, we propose a method to perform 3D imaging with a simple and robust imaging system only composed of a continuously self-imaging grating (CSIG) and a matrix detector. With a CSIG, the intensity pattern generated by an object source is periodic and propagation invariant, apart from a dilatation factor that depends on the distance of the object. We demonstrate, theoretically and experimentally, how to exploit this property to analyze a scene in three dimensions. Such an imaging system can be used, for example, for tomographic applications.
