(LaTeX) Abstract:

Light transport in complex scenes with possibly
intricate optical properties is difficult to grasp intuitively.
The study of light transport has so far
mainly been conducted by indirect observations.
Cameras or human observers typically only sense
the radiance reflected from a scene, i.e. the light directly
emitted or reflected from the last bounce of a
possibly much longer light path.
Models for the propagation of light, however,
typically assume light waves or rays, concepts
which so far have been communicated in an abstract
way using formulas or sketches. In this paper, we
propose the use of fluorescent fluids for direct visualization
of light transport in the real world. In
the fluorescent fluid the traces of light become visible
as a small fraction of the energy transported
along the ray is scattered out towards the viewer.
We demonstrate this visualization for direct illumination
effects such as reflections and refractions at
various surfaces, as well as for global effects such
as subsurface light transport in translucent material,
caustics, or interreflections. As this allows for the
inspection of entire light paths, rather than the last
scattering event, we believe that this novel visualization
can help to intuitively explain the phenomena
of light transport to students and experts alike.
