Journal Article
Atkinson, G. A., Atkinson, G., & Hancock, E. R. (2008). Two-dimensional BRDF estimation from polarisation. Computer Vision and Image Understanding, 111(2), 126-141. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cviu.2007.09.005

This paper presents a novel technique for reflectance function (BRDF) estimation, which uses polarisation information and photometric stereo. The first stage of the technique is standard and involves the acquisition of polarisation information (angle... Read More about Two-dimensional BRDF estimation from polarisation.

Reflectance of human skin using colour photometric stereo: With particular application to pigmented lesion analysis (2008)
Journal Article
Sun, J., Smith, M., Smith, L., Coutts, L., Dabis, R., Harland, C., & Bamber, J. (2008). Reflectance of human skin using colour photometric stereo: With particular application to pigmented lesion analysis. Skin Research and Technology, 14(2), 173-179. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1600-0846.2007.00274.x

Background/purpose: The optical appearance of human skin is highly dependent on the interaction between the illumination (type and position), observer position and the skin surface structure. Different currently available photographic techniques reco... Read More about Reflectance of human skin using colour photometric stereo: With particular application to pigmented lesion analysis.
