Traditional optical imaging systems can provide high-quality imaging with complicated and expensive optical design by eliminating aberrations. With the help of optical memory effect (ME), not independently improving single imaging parameter, but simultaneously improving several imaging parameters by adding scattering media to the imaging systems was demonstrated firstly. As an example, in a simple single-lens imaging system, except the depth-of-field (DOF) was improved greatly, spherical aberration, coma aberration and chromatic aberration were eliminated simultaneously by placing a scattering medium between the lens and the camera. The results indicate the potential applications of scattering media in many fields such as optical imaging, optical measurements and biomedical applications.
