Abstract

This paper presents a new high-resolution computational integral imaging system employing a pickup with the axial movement of a lenslet array and a computation reconstruction algorithm with pixel-to-pixel mapping. In the proposed method, a lenslet array and its image sensor are moved together along the z-axis direction (or axial direction) and a series of elemental image arrays are obtained while moving. The elemental image arrays are then applied to pixel-to-pixel mapping without interpolation for the reconstruction of 3D slice images. Also, an analysis of the proposed reconstruction method is provided. To show the usefulness of the proposed method, experiments are conducted. The results indicate that the proposed method is superior to the existing method such as MALT in terms of image quality.
