Abstract

Towards improvements in the quality of reconstructed images, the errors in the point spread function of a ghost imaging system caused by a limited number of samplings and imperfect illumination are discussed. We propose an algorithm by normalizing with the second-order coherence of the illumination field, with which the errors caused by imperfect illumination can be reduced, such as non-uniform spatial distribution of the average intensity, spatially varying profile of the second-order degree of coherence, or power fluctuation.
