3D Scene Modeling Using Pose-Free Reconstruction

This sketch presents a fundamental change to the traditional 3D modeling pipeline. The method completely eliminates camera position and orientation parameters, significantly simplifying the process for creating a real-world 3D model.

Imaging and 3D Tomographic Reconstruction of Time-Varying, Inhomogeneous Refractive Index Fields

A technique for 2D imaging and 3D tomographic reconstruction of time-varying, inhomogeneous refractive index fields. This method can be used to reconstruct phenomena such as gas plumes or liquid mixing.
