Plenoptic imaging (PI) enables refocusing, depth-of-field (DOF) extension and 3D visualization, thanks to its ability to reconstruct the path of light rays from the lens to the image. However, in state-of-the-art plenoptic devices, these advantages come at the expenses of the image resolution, which is always well above the diffraction limit defined by the lens numerical aperture (NA). To overcome this limitation, we have proposed exploiting the spatio-temporal correlations of light, and to modify the ghost imaging scheme by endowing it with plenoptic properties. This approach, named Correlation Plenoptic Imaging (CPI), enables pushing both resolution and DOF to the fundamental limit imposed by wave-optics. In this paper, we review the methods to perform CPI both with chaotic light and with entangled photon pairs. Both simulations and a proof-of-principle experimental demonstration of CPI will be presented. View Full-Text
