Abstract

The morphology of three-dimensional foams is of interest to physicists, engineers, and mathematicians. It is desired to image the 3-dimensional structure of the foam. Many different techniques have been used to image the foam, including magnetic resonance imaging, and short-focal length lenses. We use a camera and apply tomographic algorithms to accurately image a set of bubbles. We correct for the distortion of a curved plexiglas container using ray-tracing. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
