Paper Abstract

Fringe projection is an often used optical technique for 3-D surface measurements of industrial and biological objects. Classical fringe projection has the disadvantage to determine the surface topgraphy in a quite small unambiguity range only. Gray code techniques are used to solve this problem, but the spatial resolution is reduced due to a small numerical aperture. In a new approach we want to extend the measurement range and we will increase the spatial and the vertical resolution too. This is achieved by a depth-scanning approach together with high numerical apertures for the illumination as well as for the detection. With the aid of an additional z-scanning stage either the object, the sensor, or the image plan are scanned to obtain data over the whole measurement volume. We call this technique depth-scanning fringe projection. It is especially advantageous for the measurement of medium sized objects and can achieve resolutions of less than 0.2micrometers .
