In this paper we apply the frequency transfer function (FTF) formalism to analyze the red, green and blue (RGB) phase-shifting fringe-projection profilometry technique. The phase-shifted fringe patterns in RGB fringe projection are typically corrupted by crosstalk because the sensitivity curves of most projection-recording systems overlap. Crosstalk distortion needs to be compensated in order to obtain high quality measurements. Read More

Synthesis of single-wavelength temporal phase-shifting algorithms (PSA) for interferometry is well-known and firmly based on the frequency transfer function (FTF) paradigm. Here we extend the single-wavelength FTF-theory to dual and multi-wavelength PSA-synthesis when several simultaneous laser-colors are present. The FTF-based synthesis for dual-wavelength PSA (DW-PSA) is optimized for high signal-to-noise ratio and minimum number of temporal phase-shifted interferograms. Read More

360-degrees digitalization of three-dimensional (3D) solids using a projected light-strip is a well established technique. These profilometers project a light-strip over the solid under analysis while the solid is rotated a full revolution. Then a computer program typically extracts the centroid of this light-strip, and by triangulation one obtains the shape of the solid. Read More

We describe a theoretical analysis and experimental set-up of a co-phased 360-degree fringe-projection profilometer. This 360-degree profilometer is built using 2-projections and 1-camera and can digitize discontinuous solids with diffuse light surface. A 360-degree profilometer rotate the object a full revolution to digitize the analyzing solid. Read More

Here we describe a co-phased 360-degree fringe-projection profilometer which uses 2-projectors and 1-camera and can digitize discontinuous solids with diffuse light surface. This is called co-phased because the two phase demodulated analytic-signals from each projection are added coherently. This 360-degree co-phased profilometer solves the self-generated shadows cast by the object discontinuities due to the angle between the camera and the single white-light fringe projector in standard profilometry.

This paper presents a novel digital interferometric method to demodulate Placido fringe patterns. This is a synchronous method which uses a computer-stored conic-wavefront as demodulating reference. Here we focus on the experimental aspects to phase-demodulate Placido mires applied to corneal topography. Read More

This paper presents a digital interferometric method to demodulate Placido fringe patterns. This method uses a computer-stored conic-wavefront as reference carrier. Even though, Placido mires are widely used in corneal topographers. Read More

Here a synchronous phase-demodulation method for high spatial frequency (HSF), concentric-rings Placido fringe pattern is proposed. The earliest use of this concentric-rings pattern was to gauge non-spherical irregularities of the human cornea by Portuguese ophthalmologist Antonio Placido in 1880. Most modern corneal topographers use Placido patterns to test human cornea irregularities; a field of application of this paper. Read More

We analyze the nonlinear Carr\'e 4-steps algorithm including its frequency response, signal-to-noise ratio, and harmonics rejection using linear systems theory. At first sight the previous statement as well as the title of this paper seems paradoxical. How can we analyze the 4-step non-linear Carr\'e Phase Shifting Algorithm (PSA) using linear system theory? The short answer is that the non-linear Carr\'e algorithm may be decomposed into two building blocks. Read More
