Compressive Imaging and Characterization of Sparse Light Deflection Maps

Abstract: Light rays incident on a transparent object of uniform refractive index undergo deflections, which uniquely characterize the surface geometry of the object. Associated with each point on the surface is a deflection map (or spectrum) which describes the pattern of deflections in various directions.

A (256*256) pixel 76.7mW CMOS imager/ compressor based on real-time in-pixel compressive sensing:

Abstract: A CMOS imager is presented which has the ability to perform localized compressive sensing on-chip. In-pixel convolutions of the sensed image with measurement matrices are computed in real time, and a proposed programmable two-dimensional scrambling technique guarantees the randomness of the coefficients used in successive observation.
