Abstract

This Letter presents a new approach for imaging using a linear (vector) sensor. It exploits the fact that visual information within common human intelligible images may be compressed within only a partial set of radial strips of its Fourier domain. We present two imaging schemes, one coherent and the other incoherent, that capture the partial set of radial strips of the object Fourier domain. Two main advantages of the new approach are that the image is captured directly in a compressed form and that the acquisition time is shorter compared with conventional scanning imaging systems.
