    Noise in phase shifting interferometry
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2009-05-25) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Mosiño, Juan Francisco; Cywiak Garbarcewics, Moisés
    We present a theoretical analysis to estimate the amount of phase noise due to noisy interferograms in Phase Shifting Interferometry (PSI). We also analyze the fact that linear filtering transforms corrupting multiplicative noise in Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry (ESPI) into fringes corrupted by additive gaussian noise. This fact allow us to obtain a formula to estimate the standard deviation of the noisy demodulated phase as a function of the spectral response of the preprocessing spatial filtering combined with the PSI algorithm used. This phase noise power formula is the main result of this contribution.

    Spectral analysis of phase shifting algorithms
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2009-09-14) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Servín Guirado, Manuel
    Systematic spectral analysis of Phase Shifting Interferometry (PSI) algorithms was first proposed in 1990 by Freischlad and Koliopoulos (F&K). This analysis was proposed with the intention that "in a glance" the main properties of the PSI algorithms would be highlighted. However a major drawback of the F&K spectral analysis is that it changes when the PSI algorithm is rotated or its reference signal is time-shifted. In other words, the F&K spectral plot is different when the PSI algorithm is rotated or its reference is time-shifted. However, it is well known that these simple operations do not alter the basic phase demodulation properties of PSI algorithms, except for an unimportant piston. Here we propose a new way to analyze the spectra of PSI algorithms which is invariant to rotation and/or reference time-shift among other advantages over the nowadays standard PSI spectral analysis by F&K.

    Incremental PCA algorithm for fringe pattern demodulation
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2022-04-11) Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Alonso Fernández, José; Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Vargas Balbuena, Javier
    This work proposes a new algorithm for demodulating fringe patterns using principal component analysis (PCA). The algorithm is based on the incremental implantation of the singular value decomposition (SVD) technique for computing the principal values associated with a set of fringe patterns. Instead of processing an entire set of interferograms, the proposed algorithm proceeds in an incremental way, processing sequentially one (as minimum) interferogram at a given time. The advantages of this procedure are twofold. Firstly, it is not necessary to store the whole set of images in memory, and, secondly, by computing a phase quality parameter, it is possible to determine the minimum number of images necessary to accurately demodulate a given set of interferograms. The proposed algorithm has been tested for synthetic and experimental in ter ferograms showing a good performance.

    The general theory of phase shifting algorithms
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2009-11-23) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Servín Guirado, Manuel
    We have been reporting several new techniques of analysis and synthesis applied to Phase Shifting Interferometry (PSI). These works are based upon the Frequency Transfer Function (FTF) and how this new tool of analysis and synthesis in PSI may be applied to obtain very general results, among them; rotational invariant spectrum; complex PSI algorithms synthesis based on simpler first and second order quadrature filters; more accurate formulae for estimating the detuning error; output-power phase noise estimation. We have made our cases exposing these aspects of PSI separately. Now in the light of a better understanding provided by our past works we present and expand in a more coherent and holistic way the general theory of PSI algorithms. We are also providing herein new material not reported before. These new results are on; a well defined way to combine PSI algorithms and recursive linear PSI algorithms to obtain resonant quadrature filters.

    Steerable spatial phase shifting applied to single-image closed-fringe interferograms
    (The Optical Society of America, 2009-04-20) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Estrada, Julio César; Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio
    It is well known that spatial phase shifting interferometry (SPSI) may be used to demodulate two-dimensional (2D) spatial-carrier-interfrograms. In these crises the application of SPSI is straightforward because the modulating phase is a monotonic increasing function of space. However, this is not true when we apply SPSI to demodulate a single-image interferogram containing closed fringes. This is because using these algorithms, one would obtain a wrongly demodulated monotonic phase all over the 2D space. We present a technique to overcome this drawback and to allow any SPSI algorithm to be used as a single-image fringe pattern demodulator containing closed fringes. We make use of the 2D spatial orientation direction of the fringes to steer (orient) the one-dimensional SPSI algorithm in order to correctly demodulate the nonmonotonic 2D phase all over the interferogram.

    Easy and straightforward construction of wideband phase-shifting algorithms for interferometry
    (The Optical Society of America, 2009-02-15) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Estrada, Julio César
    We show a practical way for building wideband phase-shifting algorithms for interferometry. The idea presented combines first- and second-order quadrature filters to obtain wideband phase-shifting algorithms. These first- and second-order quadrature filters are analogous to the first- and second-order filters commonly used in communications engineering, named building blocks. We present a systematic way to develop phase-shifting algorithms with large detuning robustness or large bandwidth. In general, the approach presented here gives a powerful frequency analysis and design tool for phase-shifting algorithms robust to detuning for interferometry.

    Role of the filter phase in phase sampling interferometry
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2011-10-10) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Estrada, Julio César; Vargas Balbuena, Javier; Torre Belizón, Francisco Javier de la
    Any linear phase sampling algorithm can be described as a linear filter characterized by its frequency response. In traditional phase sampling interferometry the phase of the frequency response has been ignored because the impulse responses can be made real selecting the correct sample offset. However least squares methods and recursive filters can have a complex frequency response. In this paper, we derive the quadrature equations for a general phase sampling algorithm and describe the role of the filter phase.

    Path independent demodulation method for single image interferograms with closed fringes within the function space C^2
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2006-10-16) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Estrada, Julio César; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Marroquín Zaleta, José Luis
    In the last few years, works have been published about demodulating Single Fringe Pattern Images (SFPI) with closed fringes. The two best known methods are the regularized phase tracker (RPT), and the two-dimensional Hilbert Transform method (2D-HT). In both cases, the demodulation success depends strongly on the path followed to obtain the expected estimation. Therefore, both RPT and 2D-HT are path dependent methods. In this paper, we show a novel method to demodulate SFPI with closed fringes which follow arbitrary sequential paths. Through the work presented here, we introduce a new technique to demodulate SFPI with estimations within the function space C ; in other words, estimations where the phase curvature is continuous. The technique developed here, uses a frequency estimator which searches into a frequency discrete set. It uses a second order potential regularizer to force the demodulation system to look into the function space C^2. The obtained estimator is a fast demodulator system for normalized SFPI with closed fringes. Some tests to demodulate SFPI with closed fringes using this technique following arbitrary paths are presented. The results are compared to those from RPT technique. Finally, an experimental normalized interferogram is demodulated with the herein suggested technique.

    Design of phase-shifting algorithms by fine-tuning spectral shaping
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2011-05-23) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Estrada, Julio César; González, Christhian Adonai
    To estimate the modulating wavefront of an interferogram in Phase Shifting Interferometry (PSI) one frequently uses a Phase Shifting Algorithm (PSA). All PSAs take as input N phase-shifted interferometric measures, and give an estimation of their modulating phase. The first and best known PSA designed explicitly to reduce a systematic error source (detuning) was the 5-steps, Schwider-Hariharan (SH-PSA) PSA. Since then, dozens of PSAs have been published, designed to reduce specific data error sources on the demodulated phase. In Electrical Engineering the Frequency Transfer Function (FTF) of their linear filters is their standard design tool. Recently the FTF is also being used to design PSAs. In this paper we propose a technique for designing PSAs by fine-tuning the few spectral zeroes of a PSA to approximate a template FTF spectrum. The PSA's spectral zeroes are moved (tuned) while gauging the plot changes on the resulting FTF's magnitude.

    Two-step self-tuning phase-shifting interferometry
    (The Optical Society Of America, 2011-01-11) Quiroga Mellado, Juan Antonio; Vargas Balbuena, Javier; Belenguer Dávila, Tomás; Servín Guirado, Manuel; Estrada, Julio César
    A two-step self-tuning phase-shifting method is presented. The phase-step between the two interferograms is not known when the experiment is performed. Our demodulating method finds, in a robust way, this unknown phase-step. Once the phase-step is estimated we proceed to phase demodulate the interferograms. Moreover our method only requires the fringe patterns to have a constant unknown phase-shift between them. As a consequence, this technique can be used to demodulate open and closed-fringed patterns without phase-sign ambiguity. The method may be regarded as a self-tuning quadrature filter, which determines the phase-shift between the two fringe patterns and finally estimates the demodulated phase map. The proposed technique has been tested with simulated and real interferograms obtaining satisfactory results.
