Publication# Estimation of multiple phases from a single fringe pattern in digital holographic interferometry

Abstract

Simultaneous measurement of multidimensional displacements using digital holographic interferometry involves multi-directional illumination of the deformed object and requires the reliable estimation of the resulting multiple interference phase distributions. The paper introduces an elegant method to simultaneously estimate the desired multiple phases from a single fringe pattern. The proposed method relies on modeling the reconstructed interference field as a piecewise multicomponent polynomial phase signal. Effectively, in a given region or segment, the reconstructed interference field is represented as the sum of different components i.e. complex signals with polynomial phases. The corresponding polynomial coefficients are estimated using the product high-order ambiguity function. To ensure proper matching of the estimated coefficients with the corresponding components, an amplitude based discrimination criterion is used. The main advantage of the proposed method is direct retrieval of multiple phases without the application of spatial carrier based filtering operations.

Wave interference

In physics, interference is a phenomenon in which two coherent waves are combined by adding their intensities or displacements with due consideration for their phase difference. The resultant wave may have greater intensity (constructive interference) or lower amplitude (destructive interference) if the two waves are in phase or out of phase, respectively. Interference effects can be observed with all types of waves, for example, light, radio, acoustic, surface water waves, gravity waves, or matter waves as well as in loudspeakers as electrical waves.

Scientific method

The scientific method is an empirical method for acquiring knowledge that has characterized the development of science since at least the 17th century (with notable practitioners in previous centuries; see the article history of scientific method for additional detail.) It involves careful observation, applying rigorous skepticism about what is observed, given that cognitive assumptions can distort how one interprets the observation.

Polynomial

In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of indeterminates (also called variables) and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and positive-integer powers of variables. An example of a polynomial of a single indeterminate x is x2 − 4x + 7. An example with three indeterminates is x3 + 2xyz2 − yz + 1. Polynomials appear in many areas of mathematics and science.

It is well-known that for any integral domain R, the Serre conjecture ring R(X), i.e., the localization of the univariate polynomial ring R[X] at monic polynomials, is a Bezout domain of Krull dimension
