Method of optical image coding by time integration is proposed. Coding in proposed method is accomplished by shifting object image over photosensor area of digital camera during registration. It results in optically calculated convolution of original image with shifts trajectory. As opposed to optical coding methods based on the use of diffractive optical elements the described coding method is feasible for implementation in totally incoherent light. The method was preliminary tested by using LC monitor for image displaying and shifting. Shifting of object image is realized by displaying video consisting of frames with image to be encoded at different locations on screen of LC monitor while registering it by camera. Optical encoding and numerical decoding of test images were performed successfully. Also more practical experimental implementation of the method with use of LCOS SLM Holoeye PLUTO VIS was realized. Objects images to be encoded were formed in monochromatic spatially incoherent light. Shifting of object image over camera photosensor area was accomplished by displaying video consisting of frames with blazed gratings on LCOS SLM. Each blazed grating deflects reflecting from SLM light at different angle. Results of image optical coding and encoded images numerical restoration are presented. Obtained experimental results are compared with results of numerical modeling. Optical image coding with time integration could be used for accessible quality estimation of optical image coding using diffractive optical elements or as independent optical coding method which can be implemented in incoherent light.
