Polarization Imaging

A subsurface imaging technique based upon the polarization of light reflected off an object. The polarization of reflected light gives information about the object's absorption properties that traditional intensity sensors are not capable of obtaining. The characteristics gained through the technique coupled with computer vision programs can effectively complete image-segmentation and object orientation tasks, enabling novel techniques for noninvasive surface and beneath-the-surface imaging.
