We apply CMB lensing techniques to large scale structure and solve for the 3-D cosmic tidal field. We use small scale filamentary structures to solve for the large scale tidal shear and gravitational potential. By comparing this to the redshift space density field, one can in principle measure the gravitational growth factor on large scales without cosmic variance. This potentially enables accurate measurements of neutrino masses. We relate the tidal fields to the squeezed limit bispectrum, and present initial results from simulations and data from the SDSS.
