    A Framework for Transient Rendering

    In this work, we describe light transport in transient-state, and devise new sampling strategies to adapt rendering algorithms to include the extra involved temporal dimension. We render time-resolved phenomena, leading to animations that visualize light in motion and enable a better understanding of light transport itself.

    Improved Sampling for Gradient-Domain Metropolis Light Transport

    We present a generalized framework for gradient-domain Metropolis rendering, and introduce three techniques to reduce sampling artifacts and variance.

    Residual Ratio Tracking for Estimating Attenuation in Heterogeneous Volumes

    We present two complementary techniques for unbiased estimation of transmittance in heterogeneous participating media. The techniques derive from the delta tracking method (also called Woodcock tracking), can be combined with hierarchical approaches (e.g. super-voxels), and are aimed towards production path tracing.

    A Framework for the Experimental Validation of Solar and Skydome Illumination

    We measure the sky using a novel acquisition setup to simultaneously capture the comprehensive illumination properties. Our hardware design simultaneously acquires the spectral, spatial, and temporal information of the skydome by measuring radiance, irradiance, and capturing HDR images.

    Rendering Volumetric Haptic Shapes in Mid-air Using Ultrasound

    We present a method for creating three-dimensional haptic shapes in mid-air by computing patterns of focused ultrasound.
