Compressive Imaging in Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy and Microwave Ghost Imaging

Here are two new hardware randomized acquisition of signals:

The concept of compressive sensing was recently proposed to significantly reduce the electron dose in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) while still maintaining the main features in the image. Here, an experimental setup based on an electromagnetic shutter placed in the condenser plane of a STEM is proposed. The shutter blanks the beam following a random pattern while the scanning coils are moving the beam in the usual scan pattern. Experimental images at both medium scale and high resolution are acquired and then reconstructed based on a discrete cosine algorithm. The obtained results confirm the predicted usefulness of compressive sensing in experimental STEM even though some remaining artifacts need to be resolved.

Microwave Surveillance based on Ghost Imaging and Distributed Antennas
Xiaopeng Wang, Zihuai Lin

In this letter, we proposed a ghost imaging (GI) and distributed antennas based microwave surveillance scheme. By analyzing its imaging resolution and sampling requirement, the potential of employing microwave GI to achieve high-quality surveillance performance with low system complexity has been demonstrated. The theoretical analysis and effectiveness of the proposed microwave surveillance method are also validated via simulations.
