Abstract

In this Letter the authors present a field experimental validation of an imaging system that, when combined with a special image-processing algorithm, allows obtaining an improved imaging quality through turbulence perturbation. The system includes simultaneous capturing of three differently focused images and performing an iterative Gerchberg–Saxton based processing for phase retrieval. After the phase is retrieved the intensity of the object is reconstructed by numerical free-space propagation of the extracted complex field to the estimated position of the object.
