Paper Abstract

Full field optical interferometry known as ESPI (Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry), has been applied to dynamical deformations on solid and semisolid objects. Although microscopic (1 to 30 micrometers), these deformations offer enough information to know even an early crack detection of the material. In industrial and biomedical environments however there is a lot of noise bigger than the signal we try to recovery, therefore is necessary to compensate mechanical or digitally or both. In this paper we will discuss the basic operating principle of the interferometer and analyze its performance. The technique use a continue wave laser for illuminating the tested object. The transient event is recorded by an ultra fast digital image camera. Data processing is completed with a help of a spatio-temporal algorithm. Some results are presented.
