Raindrops on a window heavily distort the view of the scene. We show that a fully calibrated 4D light field can be recovered from a single photograph taken under such adverse conditions.

How well do various digital appearance representations perform at communicating the "touch and feel" of materials?
Many real-world surfaces are covered in fine scratches that diffract light in colorful ways. Our model seamlessly transitions between ray optics and wave optics to recreate this intricate effect.
Computation of image differences is a key operation in computational imaging. We use time-of-flight sensors to perform this operation in a single shot, and discover some remarkable features.

We show that using multi-frequency time-of-flight measurements, five different white materials can be distinguished on a per-pixel basis.

We demonstrate the tracking of objects outside the line of sight from 3rd-order indirect diffuse reflections, captured using a regular laser pointer and a 2D camera.

A reflectance model for pile fabrics that you can "draw on" using your fingers, like velvet or Alcantara.

A new computational imaging system that captures metric radial velocity information per pixel -- think of a huge array of traffic speed guns that use light instead of radar.

How to look around a corner using echoes of light, using low-end devices that can't even properly measure such data.

A computational method for capturing videos of light in flight using consumer-grade imaging hardware.

We define the problem of physically displaying material appearance, and demonstrate a conceptual device that exhibits precisely controllable reflectance distributions by generating waves on a water surface.

Our take on this popular effect; to our knowledge, the most complete and most efficient model to date.
