Fluorescence tomography is a well-established methodology able to provide structural and functional information on the measured object. At optical wavelengths, the unpredictable scattering of light is often considered a problem to overcome, rather than a feature to exploit. Advances in disordered photonics have shed new light on possibilities offered by opaque materials, treating them as autocorrelation lenses able to create images and focus light. In this Letter, we propose tomography through disorder, introducing a modified Fourier-slice theorem, the cornerstone of the computed tomography, aiming to reconstruct a three-dimensional fluorescent sample hidden behind an opaque curtain.

Abstract

Fluorescence tomography is a well-established methodology able to provide structural and functional information on the measured object. At optical wavelengths, the unpredictable scattering of light is often considered a problem to overcome, rather than a feature to exploit. Advances in disordered photonics have shed new light on possibilities offered by opaque materials, treating them as autocorrelation lenses able to create images and focus light. In this Letter, we propose tomography through disorder, introducing a modified Fourier-slice theorem, the cornerstone of the computed tomography, aiming to reconstruct a three-dimensional fluorescent sample hidden behind an opaque curtain.
