We discuss physical and information theoretical limits of optical 3D metrology. Based on these principal considerations we introduce a novel single-shot 3D movie camera that almost reaches these limits. The camera is designed for the 3D acquisition of macroscopic live scenes. Like a hologram, each movie-frame encompasses the full 3D information about the object surface and the observation perspective can be varied while watching the 3D movie. The camera combines single-shot ability with a point…

3D Surface Measurement and Analysis of Works of Art
This work develops methods to measure matte and specular surfaces using hand-held mobile devices and presents case studies for each method: detecting protrusions growing in Georgia O’Keeffe paintings and identifying surface features of Tiffany stained glass.
Intensity interferometry-based 3D imaging.
This work presents a 3D imaging device based on real thermal light intensity interferometry using gated SPAD technology, which allows the use of more light modes to enhance 3D ranging performance.
Exploiting Wavelength Diversity for High Resolution Time-of-Flight 3D Imaging
A novel sensor concept is introduced that provides ToF-based 3D measurements of real world objects and surfaces with depth precision up to 35 up to several megapixels and point cloud densities commensurate with the native sensor resolution of standard CMOS/CCD detectors.
Hand-guided qualitative deflectometry with a mobile device.
This work introduces a system that exploits the screen and front-facing camera of a mobile device to perform three-dimensional deflectometry-based surface measurements, and demonstrates high-quality 3D surface measurements without the need for a calibration procedure.
GOBO projection for 3D measurements at highest frame rates: a performance analysis
This work theoretically investigates the method of GOBO projection of aperiodic sinusoidal fringes, and shows that the proposed technique has several advantages over conventional fringe projection techniques, as the easy-to-build and cost-effective GOBO projector can provide a high radiant flux, allows high frame rates, and can be used over a wide spectral range.
Solving the Problem with an Additional Source of Information
Line triangulation already displays important features of a ‘perfect’ single-shot principle but lacks high data density. Hence, current line triangulation sensors, like Flying Triangulation, are far

Recording and (computational) processing of complex wave fields offer a vast realm of new methods for optical 3D metrology. We discuss fundamental similarities and differences between holographic


Single-shot three-dimensional sensing with improved data density
This work will demonstrate that the necessary information for unique line indexing can be acquired by two synchronized cameras and a back projection scheme, and preserves high lateral resolution, since the lines are as narrow as the sampling theorem allows.
Dense 3D Reconstruction from High Frame-Rate Video Using a Static Grid Pattern
A technique based on a one-shot scanning method, which reconstructs 3D shapes for each frame of a high frame-rate video capturing the scenes projected by a static pattern, to avoid instability of image processing and produces accurate and robust results.
Flying triangulation--an optical 3D sensor for the motion-robust acquisition of complex objects.
An optical sensor principle is presented-the authors call it "flying triangulation"-that enables a motion-robust acquisition of 3D surface topography and combines a simple handheld sensor with sophisticated registration algorithms.
Flying Triangulation - a Motion-Robust Optical 3D Sensor for the Real-Time Shape Acquisition of Complex Objects
The three-dimensional shape acquisition of objects has become more and more important in the last years. Up to now, there are several well-established methods which already yield impressive results.
Absolute phase measurements using geometric constraints between multiple cameras and projectors.
Two methods are proposed to determine the absolute phase without additional patterns being projected by observing the projected pattern with multiple cameras and applying the geometric constraints between them, and to prevent failure in unwrapping the phase by referring to continuities in the relative phases of multiple projected patterns.
Viewpoint-Coded Structured Light
This work introduces a theoretical framework and practical algorithms for replacing time-coded structured light patterns with viewpoint codes, in the form of additional camera locations, and demonstrates reliable depth reconstruction that makes neither temporal nor spatial continuity assumptions about the scene being captured.
Information theoretical optimization for optical range sensors.
It is shown that one can greatly reduce the amount of raw data needed by proper optical redundancy reduction by introducing a 3D sensor, which needs only a single color raw image and still delivers data with only approximately 2-microm longitudinal measurement uncertainty.
3D shape measurement of static and moving objects with adaptive spatiotemporal correlation.
A spatiotemporal correlation that adapts its temporal and spatial support locally to the motion of the measured objects to measure dynamic scenes that contain static and moving objects is presented.
