Paper Abstract

By using spherical designed three-core fiber, a micro structured light pattern generator for sensing of 3-D object shapes has been demonstrated. The square or hexagon grid interferometric fringe pattern formed by the fiber optic interferometric grid generator is projected on an object's surface. The deformed grid pattern containing information of the object's surface topography is captured by a CCD camera and is analyzed using a 2-D Fourier transforming profilometry. The use of fiber optic grid interferogram technique greatly simplifies the holographic interferometry system and the carrier grid interferogram can be conveniently generated without the use of excessive auxiliary components or sophisticated experimental devices, and moreover, the three-core fiber can be used in very narrow places due to its small size. Finally, the square or hexagon grid interferometric fringe pattern provides a data fusion ability, which could further improve the accuracy of the 3-D shape sensing results.
