Paper Abstract

An original experimental setup for shearography with metrological applications is presented herein. The simplicity and the efficiency of the setup are provided by a shearing device, a prism that separates the TE and TM polarization modes with a coating and a thin glass plate attached on its face. The temporal phase shifting method is applied through the use of a liquid crystal variable retarder. The use of this shearing device enables an in-line and almostcommon path configuration for the shearing interferometer, a path that leads to high stability of the interferometer and a low sensitivity to external disturbances. In order to prove the efficiency and the accuracy of this speckle shearing interferometer, the out-of-plane displacement derivative relative to the shearing interferometry direction of a centrally loaded steel plate has been measured by the shearographic interferometer and then compared with the out-of-plane displacement derivative computed from the displacement field provided by the finite element method. The results are in good agreement.
