Paper Abstract

This paper describes recent developments on methods for quantitative analysis of holographic interferograms. Two areas are considered : the holographic system and the automatic processing of fringe images. The holographic system is based on a quasi heterodyne technique. Methods for reconstructing the image with a single beam are presented. This produces a continuously variable phase difference between the two images of the object. An analysis of the errors has been performed for the reconstructed phase maps. A tiling approach and graph theory have been applied to the fringe field processing problem. This has produced an automatic method for analysing fringes forming an optimum solution for a phase or height map.
