Abstract

A new type of imaging, Quantum ghost imaging, is described that is based on the measurement of photons reflected from an object . A CCD array is placed facing a chaotic light source and gated by a photon counting detector that simply counts all randomly reflected photons from an object. A ``ghost'' image of the object is then observed in the gated CCD. This interesting demonstration is not only useful for practical applications, such as x-ray lensless imaging, but is also important from a fundamental point of view. It further explores the nonclassical two-photon interference nature of thermal light ghost imaging.
