Holographic interferometry using two-wavelength holography for the measurement of large deformations.


Visible holographic interferometry is generally too sensitive for the measurement of large deformations. We present a holographic method that permits an increase in the range of measurable deformations. It requires the use of two different wavelengths, λ(1) and λ(2), and two holograms in series. We develop the theoretical basis of a method that permits the obtention of an interferogram as if a longer equivalent wavelength, λ(eq) = λ(1)λ(2)/|λ(1) -λ(2)|, were used. The method is experimentally tested by use of a setup that can be easily converted into a classical single-wavelength holographic interferometer, permitting comparison of the interferograms of the same deformation produced with both methods. Significant results are presented.
