We demonstrate for the first time (to our knowledge) that an image with high quality can still be obtained in scattering media by applying the second-order correlation of illuminating light field. The effect of multiple scattering on the imaging quality is analyzed both theoretically and experimentally. Potential applications and methods to further improve the imaging quality in scattering media are also discussed.
