Quantum Images with Super-Resolution

  • Dmitriy Balakin
  • Alexander BelinskyEmail author


We present the method of obtaining quantum images (formed by sub-Poissonian light) and the conditions under which the transparency distribution of an imaged object can be estimated by the mathematical measurement reduction method with the resolution exceeding the geometrical resolution of photodetectors.
