Paper Abstract

To enhance the performance of the Fourier-transform profilometry, a phase unwrapping technique is proposed which is based on the number theory combined with spatial frequency multiplexing. The technique enables the automatic three-dimensional shape measurement of the objects that have discontinuous height steps and/or spatially isolated surfaces, which has not been possible by conventional fringe projection techniques. Another feature of the technique is that it requires only a single fringe pattern, which makes possible the measurement of objects in very fast motion. Experimental results are presented that demonstrate the validity of the principle. Keywords: phase unwrapping, profilometry, fringe analysis, optical metrology, heterodyne interferometry, Fourier transform
