Polar Synthetic Imaging: Single Pixel Imaging with Rotating Spiral Masks Open Access
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The use of spiral masks placed in front of a single pixel and rotated in time is investigated as a method of single pixel imaging. Single pixel imaging allows an image to be reconstructed from samples of a single pixel over time. This sampling has traditionally been accomplished with liquid crystal arrays or digital micromirror devices. A set of rotating spiral masks in the aperture offer an alternative solution that may reduce complexity and cost for some imaging applications.
