Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel method for pinhole optics with variable pinhole arrays. The imaging system is based on a time multiplexing method using variable and moving pinhole arrays. The improved resolution and signal-to-noise ratio are achieved with improved light intensity in the same exposure time, compared with that of a one-pinhole system. This new configuration preserves the advantages of pinhole optics while solving the resolution limitation problem and the long exposure time of such systems. The system also can be used as an addition to several existing optical systems, which use visible and invisible light and x-ray systems.
