The research goal of this work package is to advance the theory and practice of 3D scene sensing and content creation and develop new imaging systems operating at various scales, employing modern imaging concepts such as integral imaging for microscopy, plenoptic lenslet cameras for macroscopic content, and large-scale full parallax multiview and multi-sensor camera systems.
The research in this work package is divided in five tasks, which are also ESR’s individual projects:
- Modelling of Plenoptic capture in geometrical optics considering lightfield sampling and aliasing (ESR3)
- Plenoptic microscopy and pure-phase object sensing (ESR5)
- Algorithms for the conversion of image data acquired using sparse angular sampling into a dense lightfield (ESR10)
- Measuring physical parameters with plenoptic cameras: capture, calibration, computation (ESR14)
- Large-scale lightfield capturing and multimodal data fusion for full-parallax imaging (ESR15)
These individual projects should, jointly and in interaction, answer the question what are the optimal and application-specific capture setups in terms of number, direction and density of captured rays. In the work package, several capture settings are considered, ranging from large multi-camera and multi-sensor capture rigs where spatial resolution is high but angular resolution is rather low; through micro lens arrays, where angular resolution is similar to the spatial one, but the field of view is limited; to lightfield microscopy, where the field of view is so narrow that wave effects cannot be disregarded.
