Combined with the light-field imaging technique, the Landweber method is applied to the reconstruction of three-dimensional (3D) temperature distribution in absorbing media theoretically and experimentally. In the theoretical research, simulated exit radiation intensities on the boundary of absorbing media according to the computing model of light field are employed as inputs for inverse analysis. Compared with the commonly used iterative methods, i.e., the least-square QR decomposition method and algebraic reconstruction technique (ART), the Landweber method can produce reconstruction results with better quality and less computational time. Based on the numerical study, an experimental investigation is conducted to validate the suitability of the proposed method. The temperature distribution of the ethylene diffusion flame is reconstructed by using the Landweber method from the flame image captured by a light-field camera. Good agreement was found between the reconstructed temperature distribution and the measured temperature data obtained by a thermocouple. All the experimental results demonstrate that the temperature distribution of ethylene flame can be reconstructed reasonably by using the Landweber method combined with the light-field imaging technique, which is proven to have potential for the use in noncontract measurement of temperature distribution in practical engineering applications.
