Abstract

Light field reconstruction from images captured by focal plane sweeping can achieve high lateral resolution comparable to the modern camera sensor. This is impossible for the conventional micro-lenslet-based light field capture systems. However, the severe defocus noise and the low depth resolution limit its applications. In this paper, we analyze the defocus noise in the focal-plane-sweeping-based light field reconstruction technique, and propose a method to reduce the defocus noise. Both numerical and experimental results verify the proposed method.
