Paper Abstract

Non-destructive testing, particularly, in dynamical phenomena metrology, sensing, and control is a topic of major interest within optical metrology. Holography is rated as one of the most accurate techniques though of difficult practical implementation on industrial environment. Electronic holography or electronic speckle pattern interferometry (E.S.P.I.) is the credited alternative whenever lower resolution is not an impedement, and maximum advantages are to be gained from its TV based operating principle. A review is presented of improvements on E.S.P.I. techniques to further its technical capabilities and resolve some of the inconveniences of holography in industrial applications. Fibre optics was combined with synchronized amplitude and phase illuminating pulse modulation. Fringe enhancement was studied to remove coarsely appearance. Moire evaluation techniques were introduced for direct data extraction, increase of local sensitivity and reduction of inconveniences of high sensitivity of interferometric techniques.
