Abstract

We develop and experimentally test a method for three-dimensional imaging of hidden objects in a scattering medium. In our scheme, objects hidden between two biological tissues at different depths from the viewing system are recovered, and their three-dimensional locations are computed. Analogous to a fly’s two eyes, two microlens arrays are used to observe the hidden objects from different perspectives. At the output of each lens array we construct the objects from several sets of many speckled images with a previously suggested technique that uses a reference point. The differences of the reconstructed images in both arrays with respect to the reference point yield the information regarding the relative depth among the various objects.
