Low-coherence photorefractive holography has the potential to acquire wide-field coherence-gated images at frame rates approaching 1000 frames/s, including through scattering media. We present a quantitative analysis of the system optimization and limits of performance for coherence-gated imaging through scattering media using photorefractive holography and compare this performance to direct CCD detection. We show that, for high optical quality recording photorefractive multiple quantum well devices, photorefractive holography has the potential to provide a higher dynamic range than is possible with direct CCD-based detection.
