Abstract


We propose to use multiphoton interferences of photons emitted fromstatistically independent thermal light sources in combination with linear optical detection techniques to reconstruct, i.e., image, arbitrary source geometries in one dimension with subclassical resolution. The scheme is an extension of earlier work [S. Oppel et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 233603 (2012)], where N regularly spaced sources in one dimension were imaged by use of the Nth-order intensity correlation function. Here, we generalize the scheme to reconstruct any number of independent thermal light sources at arbitrary separations in one dimension, exploiting intensity correlation functions of order m >= 3. We present experimental results confirming the imaging protocol and provide a rigorous mathematical proof for the obtained subclassical resolution.
