Paper Abstract

Our study shows that the phase error caused by improperly defocused binary structured patterns correlates to the depth z. This finding leads to a novel uniaxial three-dimensional shape measurement technique without triangulation. Since the measurement can be performed from the same viewing angle, this proposed method overcomes some limitations of the triangulation-based techniques, such as the problem of measuring deep holes. Our study explains the principle of the technique and presents some experimental results to verify its feasibility.
