Techniques and Principles in Three-Dimensional Imaging

Book Description

The current progression of 3-D imaging is part of a photonics revolution that continues to discover new human needs and ever-greater potential. Updating the content as further technologies and commercial applications appear becomes essential in the field of 3-D imaging. Techniques and Principles in Three-Dimensional Imaging: An Introductory Approach provides the reader with a concrete understanding of basic principles and pitfalls for 3-D capturing. Highlighting stereoscopic imaging systems including holography; this book is an essential tool for scholars concerned with the interdisciplinary field of 3-D science and next generation imaging, as well as readers interested in the field of three-dimensional and its wider application.
