    ABSTRACT: This paper describes a structured lighting method for the measurement of surface profiles of mat objects. In this kind of profilometry, a grating with binary transmittance distribution has been utilized. In these cases such a problem is known that an error is caused due to the non- sinusoidal transmittance of the grating. Another practical difficulty is in mechanical shifting of the grating. Here we propose to use a hybrid grating which consists of a conventional binary grating and a liquid crystal (LC) binary grating. Moire pattern produced by superposing these two binary gratings is available to overcome these problems. When two binary gratings are overlapped, the resultant moire pattern becomes closely sinusoidal in intensity distribution. And, when the LC grating pattern is moved, the projected pattern can be shifted arbitrarily in phase. Surface profiles of some samples are measured to show validity of hybrid grating projection and utility of the prototype system.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes a grating projection method for the measurement of surface profiles of objects. In this kind of profilometry, a grating with binary transmittance distribution has been utilized usually. And in these cases such a problem is known as an error is caused due to the non-sinusoidal transmittance distribution of the grating. And another difficulty is also indicated that shifting of the grating is given by mechanical movement of the grating. Here we propose to use a hybrid grating is given by mechanical movement of the grating. Here we propose to us a hybrid grating which consists of a conventional binary grating and a liquid crystal binary grating. Then moire pattern is produced by superposing these two binary gratings. When two binary gratings are overlapped with an appropriate gap, the resultant more pattern becomes closely sinusoidal in intensity distribution. The, in the optical arrangement for profile measurement using this hybrid grating, when the LC gratin pattern is moved, the projected pattern is shifted arbitrarily in phase. Surface profiles of some samples are measured to show validity of the more pattern projection and utility of the prototype system.
