Architecture for one-shot compressive imaging using computer-generated holograms.

13 Feb 2018

We propose a synchronous implementation of compressive imaging. This method is mathematically equivalent to prevailing sequential methods, but uses a static holographic optical element to create a spatially distributed spot array from which the image can be reconstructed with an instantaneous measurement. We present the holographic design requirements and demonstrate experimentally that the linear algebra of compressed imaging can be implemented with this technique. We believe this technique can be integrated with optical metasurfaces, which will allow the development of new compressive sensing methods.
