Optical imaging through inhomogeneous media based on autocorrelations suffers from a limited field of view (FOV), since the optical memory effect (ME) of a scattering medium has its inherent angular extent. Here we successfully expand the angular ME range by exploiting a spatial filtering technique to select low-frequency components, mainly ballistic light and less scattered light, thereby increasing the FOV of the speckle autocorrelation imaging. Both a simulation and experimental verifications are presented. This technique, which is not limited to the discussed 4f structure, can provide a guideline for the design of an optical system to image through scattering media.
