One can achieve high-resolution (superresolution) imaging, beyond the classical limit, by exploiting certain degrees of freedom such as time and polarization for the object under consideration. We present an implementation, based on polarization coding, that requires insertion of a single mask into the object plane followed by postprocessing of the detected signal. We describe the procedure and provide experimental evidence for the implementation of the proposed technique.
