Notes on Transient Imaging

In fall 2014, I took a seminar course in computer graphics, where we reviewed an emerging technology of capturing the propagation of light pulses. This work was sparked in recent years by the work of Velten, Raskar and Bawendi from MIT in their 2011 paper titled "Picosecond camera for time-of-flight imaging". In response to this work, a team at the University of British Columbia (UBC) developed a much cheaper alternative (with certain limitations) to the hardware setup originally proposed by Velten et al. In their 2013 SIGGRAPH paper titled "Low-budget Transient Imaging using Photonic Mixer Devices", Heide et al. developed »
