Ghost tomography using single-pixel detection extends the emerging field of ghost imaging to three dimensions, with the use of penetrating radiation. In this work, a series of spatially random x-ray intensity patterns is used to illuminate a specimen in various tomographic angular orientations with only the total transmitted intensity being recorded by a single-pixel camera (or bucket detector). The set of zero-dimensional intensity readings, combined with knowledge of the corresponding two…

X-ray computational ghost imaging with single-pixel detector.

Computational ghost imaging at X-ray wavelengths with only one single-pixel detector is demonstrated, by using a known designed mask as a diffuser that induces intensity fluctuations in the probe beam to compute the propagation of the electromagnetic field in the absence of the investigated object.
