Paper Abstract

A comparative study is made of the phase unwrapping algorithms that adopt either phase gradients or fringe amplitudes as a reliability measure in the selection of an unwrapping path. To compare with the minimum phase-gradient spanning tree algorithm, a maximum cross- amplitude spanning tree algorithm is proposed, which searches a spanning tree that maximizes overall edge weights given by the cross-amplitudes, i.e., the products of the fringe amplitudes of neighboring pixels. Noise-immunity of the cross-amplitude spanning tree algorithm is demonstrated by experiment and computer simulation.
