Single-pixel and ghost imaging

Why? (The Short Story)

Single-pixel systems have larger applicability and lower (relative) cost to specialised focal plane array detectors. The motivation within this wider field is to explore compressed sensing and pattern sets to efficiently image and/or challenge current limits (of speed, resolution, etc.). Achieving this will create more efficient methods of higher resolution imaging with a single setup.

The Long(er) Story

Single-pixel imaging (also referred to as ghost imaging in some cases) has evolved as an exciting alternative to focal-plane detector arrays. While detector arrays remain relevant and effective, the advantages of single-pixel systems cannot be denied. The advantages of wavelength independence and the ability to achieve compressed sensing in many domains open up avenues of research previously not accessible due to costs or systems’ complexity.

In our research, we are interested in exploring different pattern sets and setups to achieve high-resolution imaging, while investigating the applications of these systems to different research and real-world problems.
