Paper Abstract

The parallel confocal method for detecting whole-field 3-D surface topography is proposed in this paper. For the realization of the method, in the confocal optical system, the micro-optic array component composed of a microlens array and a matched pinhole array has been introduced to produce a symmetrical micro-array source. Thus, it can be performed to paralleling measure the tested object surface at the same time with the multi-detecting light beams. The method fully and successfully shows the advantage of optical parallel processing in the confocal system, and overcomes the problem of a long-period scanning required by the original confocal system, from which deviations occur. Meanwhile, some experimental results with the parallel confocal detecting method are presented in the paper.
