Paper Abstract

A system employing optical fibres for electronic speckle pattern interferometry is demonstrated. Single mode optical fibres are used to provide a reference beam and illumination of the object. The Michelson interferometer formed by the reference fibre and the fibre illuminating the target is used to compensate for environmentally induced phase noise. This compensation is achieved by using an electronic servo and a piezoelectric phase modulator to lock the Michelson at its quadrature point.
