Abstract
Quantum ghost imaging was explored by use of a chaotic laser light source, a photon effcient charged coupled device (CCD) camera, a stencil mask, a photon bucket detector, and computer processing. We investigated and successfully achieved quantum ghost imaging of the stencil letters ARL from macroscopic time integration scales of 1ms to 10ms. Importantly, quantum ghost images were obtained from photons which did not interact with the letter object. In addition to the timescale effect on ghost imaging we investigated the role of speckle spatial size in resolving images. Results are presented from our investigations of these components of the time and space correlations of photons emanating from chaotic laser light and ending in both the photon bucket detector arm and the CCD arm. Important applications for quantum imaging and quantum ghost imaging are also discussed.
