Paper Abstract

In this paper, a set of polynomials are calculated to approximate the phase from a single closed fringe pattern image or interferogram. A scanning window is used to carry out the demodulation process. A polynomial function is fitted over the sub-image obtained from each scanning window. Then, the scanning window is moved on an overlapped neighbourhood of the previous one and the process is repeated. The coefficient polynomial optimization is achieved by multiple application of a genetic algorithm (GA). The GA optimizes a cost function which considers the irradiance similitude between original interferogram and fringes generated by the polynomial obtained from chromosome decodification, the smoothness of the phase being demodulated, and the phase similitude between the overlapped area of actual and previous scanning window. Closed fringe patterns with broad bandwidth can be demodulated. Preliminary results are presented.
