Paper Abstract

Digital holographic profilometry using multiwavelength from two laser diodes is applied to the measurement of the inner surface of a straight copper pipe and the detection of artificial defects such as holes, rust, and scratches made on the inner wall. To obtain the inner surface profile, a cone-shaped mirror (CSM) attached to a metal rod having two acrylic spacers is inserted into the pipe and illuminated by the collimated laser beam from the other open end of the pipe. The inspection of the pipe has been performed by shifting the CSM stepwise along the pipe axis. The new algorithm in which a positional misalignment of the CSM can be directly obtained from the experimental height profile can reduce the load for calculation of correcting the distorted experimental height profile. The pipe inspection has been done using the developed images of both the intensity and height profile for the inner wall of the pipe.
