Abstract:

New optical, electronic and information processing techniques for imaging of incoherent objects through. Fluctuating medium were studied. These techniques are based on the principles of Hanbury Brown-Twiss intensity interferometer and its generalization by the principal investigator. The effect of the fluctuating and scattering medium between an incoherent objects and sensors were investigated by using both laboratory simulation and field experiments. The statistics of intensity fluctuation of laser beam transmitted through both simulated and practical atmosphere were analyzed by the real-time data acquisition system, which consists of PDP 1520, an analog-to-digital convertor, two digital volt meters and two digital-to-analog convertors.
