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.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Camera and Display Parameters
  • Depth Acuity
  • Evaluation of Display Technologies
  • Glasses-Free 3-D Imaging
  • Historical Development of 3-D
  • Projective Geometry in Stereo Modelling
  • Stereoscopic Display Configuration and Implementation

Reviews and Testimonials

This graduate or undergraduate textbook synthesizes the vast and growing literature on three-dimensional image capture. Engineers specializing in the various aspects cover the optical wonder of the age, models for the behavior of light, principles of binocular stereoscopic imaging, analog and digital stereo-photography, head tracked auto-stereoscopic displays, integral three-dimensional imaging techniques, principles of holography: wavefront reconstruction and holographic theory, the reinvention of holography, the cultural landscape of three-dimensional imaging, and the prime illusion.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Martin Richardson gained the world’s first PhD in Display Holograms from The Royal College of Art in 1988. In 1999, he was awarded the Millennium Fellowship by the UK Millennium Government Commission and in 2009 became an Associate Member to the Royal Photographic Society when he was awarded Societies “Saxby” medal for his contributions to 3-D imaging. He is currently Professor of Modern Holography at De Montfort University, where he leads the Imaging and Displays Research Group in the Faculty of Technology.
