A transmission matrix (TM) describes the linear relationship between input and output phasor fields when a coherent wave passes through a scattering medium. Measurement of the TM enables numerous applications, but is challenging and time-intensive for an arbitrary medium. State-of-the-art methods, including phase-shifting holography and double phase retrieval, require significant amounts of measurements, and post-capture reconstruction that is often computationally intensive. In this paper, we propose 3PointTM, an approach for sensing TMs that uses a minimal number of measurements per pixel - reducing the measurement budget by a factor of two as compared to state of the art in phase-shifting holography for measuring TMs - and has a low computational complexity as compared to phase retrieval. We validate our approach on real and simulated data, and show successful focusing of light and image reconstruction on dense scattering media."
