Their technique uses single-photon detectors combined with a unique computational imaging algorithm that achieves super-high-resolution images by knitting together the sparsest of data points. The big advantage of this kind of active imaging is that the photons reflected from the subject return to the detector within a specific time window that depends on the distance.
But even while the gating and infrared lasers greatly increase the density of captured photons and reduce the noise in comparison to other methods, the amount of points captured by the camera is still too low to generate a detailed image on their own.
