Paper Abstract

Integral imaging captures three-dimensional information of the object scene by sampling the spatial and angular distribution of the light rays. In this paper, we show several three-dimensional imaging techniques based on integral imaging. First, principle of integral imaging and its basic three-dimensional visualization methods are explained. Then as its application, a three-dimensional microscope is introduced. The three-dimensional information of the microscopic specimen can be captured by applying the integral imaging principle to the conventional microscope. An extension of the basic three-dimensional visualization is also explained to enhance the resolution of the arbitrary view reconstruction. Three-dimensional information embedded in the captured ray distribution can also be exploited to synthesize the threedimensional holography of the object, which provides an efficient way for incoherent holography capture. Finally, we show an analysis of the sampling of the ray distribution. By analyzing the spatio-angular bandwidth of the ray space, the optimum sampling strategy can be found.
