Paper Abstract

The construction of electronic speckle pattern interferorneters (ESPI) using monomode optical fibre technology and solid state laser diode sources enables the realisation of compact, robust, portable instruments. The wavelength tunability of the diode sources extends the signal processing capability and the measurement techniques. Examples are presented of surface contour measurements in the range 33 μm to 8mm and heterodyne processing of time—averaged vibration fringes to enable determination of amplitude and phase relationships across the object surface.
