Compared with two-dimensional imaging, three-dimensional imaging is much more advantageous to catch the characteristic information of the target for remote sensing. We report a range-resolving ghost imaging ladar system together with the experimental demonstration of three-dimensional remote sensing with a large field of view. The experiments show that, by measuring the correlation function of intensity fluctuations between two light fields, a three-dimensional map at about 1.0 km range with 25… Expand

Phase-coded modulation 3D ghost imaging
Abstract A three-dimensional ghost imaging system based on the phase-coded modulation is proposed. The system utilizes two high speed electro-optic modulators to encode and decode the pulsed laserExpand
Multi-scale Adaptive Computational Ghost Imaging
A multi-scale adaptive imaging method based on the idea of computational ghost imaging, which can obtain a rough outline of the whole scene with a wide range then find out the interested parts and achieve high-resolution details of those parts, by controlling the field of view and the transverse coherence width of the pseudo-thermal field illuminated on thescene with a spatial light modulator.

Improving the Imaging Quality of Ghost Imaging Lidar via Sparsity Constraint by Time-Resolved Technique
It is demonstrated by both simulation and experimentally that the signal-to-noise ratio of the 3D GISC lidar can be dramatically enhanced when a time-resolved technique is used to record the target's reflection signals and the orthogonal characteristic of the target’s 3D surface structure is taken as a priori in the image reconstruction process.

Ghost Imaging for a Reflected Object with Large Incident Angles
Incident angle of light source is a key factor that affects imaging resolution of direct optical imaging for a reflected target. For a large incident angle, it is easy to form the “blind area” inExpand
