Abstract

A single shot large-capacity optical multiple-image encryption method based on wavelength multiplexing and position multiplexing is proposed. In the encryption process of the proposed method, multiple plane waves of different wavelengths are adopted to illuminate secret images that are placed at different positions along the optical axis. All the secret images are encoded into a single grayscale intensity-only image that is recorded by a monochromic camera by applying a diffractive-imaging based double random phase encoding (DRPE) system. In the decryption process, high accuracy images are decrypted without crosstalk from the intensity image through a multimode phase retrieval algorithm and a two-step iterative shrinkage/thresholding (TwIST) algorithm. The feasibility of the proposed method is demonstrated by numerical simulations.
