Our key analytic result relates the outgoing radiance due to incoming sinusoidal illumination as a function of the camera/light geometry and material properties:

The paper discusses the implications of this formula, and how it related to the accuracy of the recovered geometry:

Sea water, σ_{t} = 0.1/mm |
Chicken broth, σ_{t} = 0.2/mm |
Potato, σ_{t} = 0.5/mm |
Skin, σ_{t} = 1.0/mm |
Marble, σ_{t} = 2.0/mm |
