We review the advancement of the research toward the design and implementation of quantum plenoptic cameras, radically novel 3D imaging devices that exploit both momentum-position entanglement and photon-number correlations to provide the typical refocusing and ultra-fast, scanning-free, 3D imaging capability of plenoptic devices, along with dramatically enhanced performances, unattainable in standard plenoptic cameras: diffraction-limited resolution, large depth of focus, and ultra-low noise…

Correlation Plenoptic Imaging With Entangled Photons

Plenoptic imaging (PI) is an optical technique to perform three-dimensional imaging in a single shot. It is enabled by the simultaneous measurement of both the location and the propagation direction

Diffraction-Limited Plenoptic Imaging with Correlated Light.

It is demonstrated that correlation measurements enable pushing plenoptic imaging to its fundamental limits of both resolution and DOF, and maintaining the imaging resolution at the diffraction limit while increasing the depth of field by a factor of 7.

Correlation plenoptic imaging between arbitrary planes.

We propose a novel method to perform plenoptic imaging at the diffraction limit by measuring second-order correlations of light between two reference planes, arbitrarily chosen, within the

Single-photon avalanche diode imagers in biophotonics: review and outlook

Significant improvements have been made to SPAD imagers based on a device that acts like a 3-in-1 light particle detector, counter and stopwatch, furthering their potential use in biological imaging technologies and an analysis of the most relevant challenges still lying ahead.

Signal-to-noise properties of correlation plenoptic imaging with chaotic light

Correlation Plenoptic Imaging (CPI) is a novel imaging technique, that exploits the correlations between the intensity fluctuations of light to perform the typical tasks of plenoptic imaging (namely,

Dynamic range extension for photon counting arrays.

A thorough analysis of how to extend the SPAD dynamic range by exploiting the nonlinear photon response at high count rates and for different recharge mechanisms shows that active event-driven recharge provides ×75 dynamic range extension and offers novel ways for high dynamic range imaging.

Exploring plenoptic properties of correlation imaging with chaotic light

The plenoptic property of three different setups is unveiled, their refocusing potentialities are explored, their practical applications are discussed and their proposed protocols are discussed.

Optical-stack optimization for improved SPAD photon detection efficiency

Single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) are direct photon-to-digital detectors that enable scalable arrays with Poisson-limited signal-to-noise ratio and picosecond timing resolution. However, SPAD
