Author Affiliations +
In many imaging situations the quality of the image is degraded by phase errors. In this paper we describe an algorithm for correcting phase errors. It is applicable to cases in which the phase- error-degraded complex Fourier transform of the aberrated image is available; these include imaging with heterodyne sensors or with interferometric sensors. The phase-error correction algorithm is a variation on the iterative Fourier transform (phase retrieval) algorithm. It uses a support constraint on the object, making it useful for imaging bright objects on dark backgrounds. It can be extended to include uncertainties in both the modulus and the phase of the Fourier transform.
