Light in flight Imaging Systems

This is an imaging system for capturing “light in flight” or transient imaging, the prototype is based on modulated light source and PMD camera. In this imaging modality, short pulses of light are observed “in fligh” as they propagate through a scene. Transient images are useful to help understand light propagation in complex environments and to analyze light transport for research and many practical applications. Two such examples are the reconstruction of occluded geometry, i.e. "looking around a corner", or measuring surface reflectance.
