Paper Abstract

The design and performance of an actively phase-compensated fiber-optic speckle pattern interferometer (ESPI) is presented. Due to its portability, illuminating beam flexibility and lightweight design it provides an alternative to standard bulk-optics FSPI systems for many applications. Phase stabilization allows for long-term measurements up to several days. In addition, the provided phase stepping uses the four-step algorithm, is self calibrating, and can be performed at quasi video rate. The use of all highly birefringent fiber-optics components ensures linearly polarized light for the illuminating beams under all operating conditions.
