Abstract

The performance of Fourier-transform profilometry is enhanced by a new technique that is based on spatial frequency multiplexing combined with the Gushov-Solodkin phase unwrapping algorithm. The technique permits the three-dimensional shape measurement of objects that have discontinuous height steps and/or spatially isolated surfaces, which has not been possible by conventional Fourier-transform profilometry. An important feature of the technique is that it requires only a single fringe pattern; the single-shot recording makes possible the instantaneous three-dimensional shape measurement of discontinuous objects in fast motion. Experimental results are presented that demonstrate the validity of the principle.
