Abstract

Speckle-fringe quality can be improved by averaging many statistically independent interferograms together, which are generated by shifting the object’s illumination angle. A technique applicable to double-exposure speckle interferograms obtained from processing two speckle patterns is described. It utilizes a computer-controlled stepping motor to tilt the object illumination, which is repeatable to λ/100. Results are shown for double-exposure interferograms corresponding to mechanical deformations and vibrations. A significant increase in the fringe visibility is gained.
