Light passing through scattering media will be strongly scattered and diffused into complex speckle pattern, which contains almost all the spatial information and spectral information of the objects. Although various methods have been proposed to recover the spatial information of the hidden objects, it is still a challenge to simultaneously obtain their spectral information. Here, we present an effective approach to realize spectral imaging through scattering media by combining the spectra…

Single-shot multispectral imaging through a thin scatterer

This work uses spectral coding and compressed sensing to realize snapshot color imaging through scattering media and obtains high-fidelity multispectral images using both emulated data and experimental data.



Single-shot multispectral imaging with a monochromatic camera

This work demonstrates a single-shot multispectral imaging technique that gives flexibility to end users with a very simple optical setup, thanks to spatial correlation and spectral decorrelation of speckle patterns.

Non-invasive imaging through opaque scattering layers

An optical method is reported that allows non-invasive imaging of a fluorescent object that is completely hidden behind an opaque scattering layer and can be generalized to other contrast mechanisms and geometries.

Speckle-based hyperspectral imaging combining multiple scattering and compressive sensing in nanowire mats.

The complex spatiospectral response of a disordered material is used to demonstrate retrieval of a number of discrete wavelengths over a wide spectral range, transforming different wavelengths into distinct speckle patterns with nanometer sensitivity.

Memory-effect based deconvolution microscopy for super-resolution imaging through scattering media

It is demonstrated that the resolution of imaging systems looking behind a highly scattering medium can be improved below the diffraction-limit and this newly established ability of direct imaging through turbid media provides fundamental and practical advantages such as three-dimensional refocusing and unambiguous object reconstruction.

Photoacoustically guided wavefront shaping for enhanced optical focusing in scattering media

This work develops an efficient dual-pulse excitation approach to generate strong nonlinear photoacoustic (PA) signals based on the Grueneisen relaxation effect, which achieves optical diffraction-limited focusing in scattering media.

Multimode optical fiber based spectrometers

Compact broadband spectrometer based on upconversion and downconversion luminescence.

The reported broadband, compact, high-resolution, luminescence-based spectrometer is well suited for portable spectroscopy applications and analyzed possible sources of error in the algorithm and the corresponding limits of operation.

Memory effects in propagation of optical waves through disordered media.

Experimental results generally verify the theoretical predictions of FKLS, but do find one significant difference between experiment and theory — namely, that the exponential decay of C(x) is observed to set in almost immediately with nonzero x, while the theory predicts that its onset should be decelerated.

Measuring the transmission matrix in optics: an approach to the study and control of light propagation in disordered media.

The transmission matrix of a thick random scattering sample is determined and it is shown that this matrix exhibits statistical properties in good agreement with random matrix theory and allows light focusing and imaging through the random medium.

Looking through a diffuser and around an opaque surface: a holographic approach.

The methods are simple, easy to implement and allow fast image reconstruction because they do not require phase correction, complicated image processing, scanning of the object or any kind of wave shaping.
