Synthetic aperture methods are commonly-used techniques for providing images with super-resolution qualities. We propose an improved design of the system, coined “synthetic aperture with Fresnel elements”. The super-resolution capabilities of the proposed scheme are analyzed and experimentally demonstrated.
