Paper Abstract

Some of you attended the workshop on "Replication Technology" which was sponsored by M.I.T. in January, 1979. On that occasion, I reviewed the early work which led up to the recent, renewed interest in photo-sculpture. I was pleasantly surprised at the favorable response to that presentation and for today's seminar I thought I would take a similar approach to a closely related subject. My topic is somewhat narrower, but I hope it will be interesting and instructive to trace the origins of a simple but rather elegant technique for 3-D sensing--light beam profiling--and examine the current status and future pros-pects for this relatively inexpensive, but quite versatile technology.
