Abstract

We present the first experimental demonstration, to the best of our knowledge, of ghost imaging realized with intense beams generated by a parametric downconversion interaction seeded with pseudothermal light. As expected, the real image of the object is reconstructed satisfying the thin-lens equation. We show that the experimental visibility of the reconstructed image is in accordance with the theoretically expected one.
