Abstract

We demonstrate an experimental method to obtain a continuously variable hybrid imaging system that uses two generalized cubic phase masks, to enable real-time optimization of the trade between extended depth-of-field and noise gain. We obtain point-spread functions as a function of the rotation angle and show an example of optimization based on recovered image quality.
