Abstract

The use of complementary engineered point spread functions is proposed for the joint tasks of depth estimation and image recovery over an extended depth of field. A digital imaging system with a dynamically adjustable pupil is demonstrated experimentally. The implementation of a broadband, passive camera is demonstrated with a fractional ranging error of 4 / 10 4 at a working distance of 1 m. Once the depth and brightness information of a scene are obtained, a synthetic camera is defined and images rendered computationally to emphasize particular features such as image focusing at different depths.
