Abstract

In this Letter, we explore the effectiveness of a Hadamard encoding algorithm (HEA) for efficiently suppressing glare. Both numerical simulations and experimental data show that light intensity decays exponentially with respect to the number of HEA measurements. Specifically, we applied the HEA to reduce the intensity of a single speckle to 4.1% of its original value within only 16 measurements. In contrast, the commonly used genetic algorithm (GA) can reduce the speckle intensity only to 0.2 of its original value even after 1200 measurements. Therefore, the HEA greatly outperforms the previously adopted GA in terms of efficiency. We further show that the HEA is also applicable to suppress the integrated intensity of many speckles.
