Abstract

We present a simple reconstruction algorithm for three-dimensional (3D) incoherent source distributions imaged by a laterally scanned pinhole camera. We consider digital sampling of multiple pinhole images for 3D reconstruction and implement an experimental demonstration with lateral resolution of 2 × 10-3 rad and longitudinal resolution of approximately 0.14z2 m, where z is the object-to-pinhole distance in meters. © 1998 Optical Society of America.
