Paper Abstract

The single point Optical Diffraction Strain Sensor has been extended to a patent-pending Multipoint Diffraction Strain Sensor (MDSS) using a microlens array. The system was further extended for strain measurement with variable sensitivity and measurement range. In this paper, the MDSS is shown to measure both tilt and non-uniform strain with a sensitivity of 0.41 mε/pixel and 4.7 mrad/pixel respectively. As validation the strain measured by the MDSS is compared with that by a micro-moiré interferometer with a Gabor filtering method for fringe pattern analysis, while the tilt is compared with derivatives of the surface profile measured by a confocal microscope.
