Optimal spatiotemporal focusing through complex scattering media
Phys. Rev. E , Volume 85 - Issue Article number: 16605 p. 1- 7
We present an alternative approach for spatiotemporal focusing through complex scattering media by wave front shaping. Using a nonlinear feedback signal to shape the incident pulsed wave front, we show that the limit of a spatiotemporal matched filter can be achieved; i.e., the wave amplitude at the intended time and focus position is maximized for a given input energy. It is exactly what is also achieved with time reversal. Demonstrated with ultrasound experiments, our method is generally applicable to all types of waves.
