ABSTRACT The three deformation components x, y, z of a vibrating object are measured simultaneously by use of digital holography with a double-pulse ruby laser source. The object is illuminated from three different directions, each optically path matched with three reference beams such that three independent digital holograms are formed and added incoherently in one single CCD image. The optical phase difference between the two recordings taken for each hologram is quantitatively evaluated by the Fourier-transform method so that a set of three phase maps is obtained, representing the deformation along three sensitivity vectors. The total object deformation is obtained as a vector resultant from the data of the three phase maps. To give the full three-dimensional (3-D) description, the shape of the object is measured by the two-wavelength contouring method. Experiments are performed with a cylinder as the test object, transiently and harmonically excited. The 3-D deformation and shape measurement results are presented graphically.

    ABSTRACT: Three dimensional(3D) displacements, which can be translated further into 3D strain, are key parameters for design, manufacturing and quality control. Using different optical setups, phase-shift methods, and algorithms, several different 3D electronic speckle pattern interferometry(ESPI) systems for displacement and strain measurements have been achieved and commercialized. This paper provides a review of the recent developments in ESPI systems for 3D displacement and strain measurement. After an overview of the fundamentals of ESPI theory, temporal phase-shift, and spatial phase-shift techniques, 3D deformation measurements by the temporal phase-shift ESPI system, which is suited well for static measurement, and by the spatial phase-shift ESPI system, which is particularly useful for dynamic measurement, are discussed. For each method, the basic theory, a brief derivation and different optical layouts are presented. The state of art application, potential and limitation of the ESPI systems are shown and demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: A high core-number plastic optical fiber (POF) image guide is applied to hologram transmission in phase-shifting digital holography. To evaluate the quality of reconstructed images, the modulation transfer function (MTF) of the reconstructed images is investigated using a USAF test target as an object. In addition, the hologram transmission is also simulated using a new pattern of cores in POF and then calculated results are compared with the experimental one. Finally, we conducted a preliminary experiment of a multipoint view using two POF image guides and single CCD image sensor.

    ABSTRACT: An optoelectronic system is presented that is used to measure the 3D vector components of a vibrating object. The complete determination of the vibration occurs by combination of three different measurements. (1) A 3D system based on digital holography for the measurement of the 3D deformation vector along the directions x, y and z is used. Pulses from a ruby laser, with a separation in the range from 1 to 1000 microseconds, are used to record holograms on CCD sensors, which are later digitally reconstructed. (2) The shape of the object is determined. In this case too the ruby laser is used as a light source but now two pulses are emitted with different wavelengths. The wavelength change is produced by changing the distance between the plates of the laser output etalon. The shape is obtained by subtraction of the phases of the wavefronts recorded at the two different wavelengths. (3) For the absolute measurement of a vibration using double exposure holographic techniques, it is necessary to have a reference point where the absolute vibration is known. A precise measurement of the vibrations in a point is done by using a 3D laser Doppler vibrometer.
