Signal-to-noise ratio limitations for intensity correlation imaging
Fried, David L.
MetadataShow full item record
Intensity correlation imaging (ICI) is a concept which has been considered for the task of providing images of satellites in geosynchronous orbit using ground-based equipment. This concept is based on the intensity interferometer principle first developed by Hanbury Brown and Twiss. It is the objective of this paper to establish that a sun-lit geosynchronous satellite is too faint a target object to allow intensity interferometry to be used in developing image information about it- at least not in a reasonable time and with a reasonable amount of equipment. An analytic treatment of the basic phenomena is presented.
