Paper Abstract

Objective of this work was to realize and test a digitizer which locates precisely and rapidly, the fringe centers of an interferogram so as to perform their evaluation procedure automatically by means of a microcomputer. The adopted opto-electronic sensing device is a linear array of 1024 bar-shaped (15μmx26μm) silicon photodiodes with center-to-center spacing of 25μm. A stepping motor can move the array board in order to investigate the whole interferometric image. Scanning time is about 10ms/line. Application of the system to a Wollaston prism interferometer, in order to measure concentration profiles in a mass diffusion process of a binary gas mixture, proved the ability of the digitizer to accurately interpret interferograms. The performance and the potentiality of the system are analyzed and discussed.
