A novel technique for the simultaneous fusion, imaging and encryption of multiple objects using a single-pixel detector is proposed. Here, encoded multiplexing patterns are employed to illuminate multiple objects simultaneously. The mixed light reflected from the objects is detected by a single-pixel detector. An iterative reconstruction method is used to restore the fused image by summing the multiplexed patterns and detected intensities. Next, clear images of the objects are recovered by decoding the fused image. We experimentally obtain fused and multiple clear images by utilizing a single-pixel detector to collect the direct and indirect reflected light. Technically, by utilizing the patterns with per-pixel exposure control, multiple objects' information is multiplexed into the detected intensities and then demultiplexed computationally under the single-pixel imaging and compressed sensing schemes. An encryption experiment is performed by setting the multiplexed patterns' encoding as keys.
