Rapid measurement and compensation method of eccentricity in automatic profile measurement of the ICF capsule.


In this paper, we propose a new measurement and compensation method for the eccentricity of the inertial confinement fusion (ICF) capsule, which combines computer vision and the laser differential confocal method to align the capsule in rotation measurement. This technique measures the eccentricity of the capsule by obtaining the sub-pixel profile with a moment-based algorithm, then performs the preliminary alignment by the two-dimensional adjustment. Next, we use the laser differential confocal sensor to measure the height data of the equatorial surface of the capsule by turning it around, then obtain and compensate the remaining eccentricity ultimately. This method is a non-contact, automatic, rapid, high-precision measurement and compensation technique of eccentricity for the capsule. Theoretical analyses and preliminary experiments indicate that the maximum measurement range of eccentricity of this proposed method is 1.8 mm for the capsule with a diameter of 1 mm, and it could eliminate the eccentricity to less than 0.5 μm in 30 s.
