- Abstract: The scattering medium is usually thought to have a negative effect on imaging process. In this paper, it is shown that signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of reflective ghost imaging (GI) in the scattering medium can be improved effectively when the binary method is used. By the experimental and the numerical results, it is proved that the existence of the scattering medium is just the cause of this phenomenon, i.e., the scattering medium has the positive effect on imaging quality of reflective GI. During this process, the effect from the scattering medium behaves as the random noise which makesimaging quality of binary ghost imaging (BGI) have an obvious improvement.
