Robust Depth Estimation for Light Field Microscopy
This is a Matlab implementation of the procedure described in the paper:
Starting from a FiMic image, it creates a focal stack and separates the perspective views. Then two cost volumes are built, and refined using multi-scale and superpixels contributions. Finally, using energy minimization the two volumes are combined and the final depth map is extracted.

The FiMic microscope allows to capture light field in a single shot.

About implementation, the code is mainly in Matlab and it makes use of some MEX files (C and C++) to speed up some computations. It uses other toolboxes, but they are already present in the github folders (see References for more details).
The dependencies are a C++ compiler for the MEX code (if you are using gcc, supported version is 4.7; however until 6.x is working and Matlab just gives a warning, from 7.0 it may cause some problems. If on Linux systems, use of alternatives can help about this read more here)
It takes inspiration and parts of code from other approaches, who have been cited in the paper and we would like to thank for sharing their code.
