ACCESS HIGHLIGHT AT LIDYL: Creating 3D images with X-ray flashes using computer vision

In a recent Transnational Access project performed at French Laserlab partner LIDYL, an international team made up of researchers from Hannover, Hamburg, Lisbon and Paris-Saclay has now demonstrated a new imaging technique that enables reconstruction of a three-dimensional image based on a single acquisition, by combining computer vision and lensless imaging algorithms.
