Advances in Optical 3D Imaging Technology


Three-dimensional (3D) optical imaging has been researched extensively for various applications such as commerce, entertainment, medicine, aerospace, manufacturing, robotics, education, security, and defense. The capabilities provided by advances in 3D imaging and 3D displays have substantially enhanced the status of some these disciplines, enabling new measurements, detection, visualization, and display abilities that would not have been otherwise possible. For example, 3D medical Imaging is an emerging technology with great potential for improving disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment in the medical office, at the bedside, or in the operating room.

This special issue will focus on the latest research achievement about the optical imaging methods. The researches about the integral imaging, holography, photoacoustic imaging optic-acoustic fusion theories, novel optic-acoustic sensors and equipment, radar imaging, medical imaging, special applications, and imaging technologies are expected.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Integral imaging
  • Holography
  • 3D medical imaging
  • Photoacoustic theory and technology
  • Optic-acoustic fusion system
  • Novel sensor or equipment
  • Optical methods for acoustic measurement
  • Radar imaging
  • Superresolution reconstruction
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Fluorescence imaging
