Tomographic reconstruction of transparent objects Trifonov, Borislav Danielov
This thesis presents an optical acquisition setup and application of tomographic reconstruction to recover the shape of transparent objects. Although various optical scanning methods have been used to recover the shape of objects, they are normally intended for opaque objects, and there are difficulties in applying them to transparent ones. An alternative is to use X-ray computed tomography, but this requires a specialized setup, and computer graphics laboratories are not expected to have such equipment. Additionally, our setup avoids other problems of optical scanning, such as caused by occlusions, and is able to recover the internal geometry of the objects.
