Abstract  We present a ghost imaging scheme that can obtain a good pseudocolor image of black-and-white objects. The essential idea is to use a multi-wavelength thermal light source and the phase modulation pseudocolor encoding technique, which overcomes the disadvantages of other methods involved spatial filtering. Therefore, the pseudocolor ghost image achieved by this imaging scheme is better than that obtained by other methods in terms of brightness, color, and signal-to-noise ratio.
Keywords:  ghost imaging      pseudocolor      phase modulation
