Abstract

The inhibition effect from the cosh-Gaussian modulated incoherent source on the defocusing effect is investigated theoretically in lensless ghost imaging (LGI) and ghost diffraction (LGD) systems. The corresponding numerical simulations are presented to show the influence of the cosh-Gaussian incoherent source on the defocusing effect in LGI and LGD. Compared with the widely used Gaussian incoherent source, it is shown that the defocusing effect in LGI and LGD can be greatly weakened by properly adjusting the modulation parameter ω of the cosh-Gaussian source. To explain this phenomenon, the analytical expression for point spread function of the LGI system with the cosh-Gaussian source is derived.
