Paper Abstract

The application of electronic phase measurement techniques (heterodyne and quasi-heterodyne fringe interpolation) to dimensional profiling of 3-D objects is discussed. The contour fringes are generated by interference of two illumination sources or by two-wavelength holography. The use of a micro-computer for automated data acquisition and processing allows to determine the object shape for a large number of points and for arbitrarily shaped contour fringe surfaces. Experimental results are reported with both, heterodyne and quasi-heterodyne phase measurement, offering a typical accuracy for object depth measurement of 0.2% of the lateral extension of the object.
