Non-contact optical measurement methods are essential tools in many industrial and research domains. A family of new non-contact optical measurement methods based on the polarization states splitting technique and monochromatic light projection as a way to overcome ambient lighting for in-situ measurement has been developed1,2. Recent works3 on a birefringent element, a Savart plate, allow to build a more flexible and robust interferometer. This interferometer is a multipurpose metrological device. On one hand, the interferometer can be set in front of a CCD camera. This optical measurement system is called a shearography interferometer and allows to measure micro displacement between two states of the studied object under coherent lighting. On the other hand, by producing and shifting multiple sinusoidal Young’s interference patterns with this interferometer, and using a CCD camera, it is possible to build a 3D structured light profilometer. After giving the behavior of the Savart plate, an overview of the two devices will be given as well as their specifications and some applications. [less ▲]

Non-contact optical measurement methods are essential tools in many industrial domain. Hololab developed an original out of plane, in line and almost common path interferometer based on polarization states separation using a coated prism for fringes projection. This setup has proven efficient in the field of arts and archaeology but does not meet the demands of the industrial world. Above the acquisition speed and the post treatment process, one of the disadvantages comes from the sensitivity of the system to the environment. To overcome this disadvantage, the coated prism is substituted by a Savart plate. This device has already been used in another field of optical metrology as a shearing device. Many advantages of the prism substitution are discussed and recorded fringes patterns will be shown. [less ▲]

Shearography is a growing optical technique in the field of non-destructive testing (NDT). Hololab developed an out of plane, in line and almost common path interferometer based on polarization states separation using a coated prism for digital phase-shifting shearography. This setup is efficient but does not allow varying the shearing direction, that is an important parameter for defects detection and quantification. To overcome this disadvantage, the coated prism is substituted by a Savart plate device that allows scanning several shearing directions by rotating the device around the light propagation axis. Many advantages of the prism substitution are discussed. The behaviour of the Savart plate as a shearing device is experimentally analyzed to optimize its integration within the interferometer. Recorded phasemaps in NDT for different shearing directions are presented. [less ▲]

An original experimental setup for shearography with metrological applications is presented. The simplicity and the efficiency of the setup are provided by a shearing device, a prism that separates the TE and TM polarization modes with a coating and a thin glass plate placed on its face. The use of this shearing device enables an in-line and almost-common path configuration for the shearing interferometer, a path that leads to high stability and a low sensitivity to external disturbances. Moreover, the sensitivity of the interferometer can be easily adjusted for different applications by varying the shearing amount with glass plates of different thicknesses or by moving the shearing device between two lenses along the optical axis. The temporal phase-shifting method is applied through the use of a liquid crystal variable retarder. (c) 2007 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers. [less ▲]

An original experimental setup for shearography with metrological applications is presented herein. The simplicity and the efficiency of the setup are provided by a shearing device, a prism that separates the TE and TM polarization modes with a coating and a thin glass plate attached on its face. The temporal phase shifting method is applied through the use of a liquid crystal variable retarder. The use of this shearing device enables an in-line and almost-common path configuration for the shearing interferometer, a path that leads to high stability of the interferometer and a low sensitivity to external disturbances. In order to prove the efficiency and the accuracy of this speckle shearing interferometer, the out-of-plane displacement derivative relative to the shearing interferometry direction of a centrally loaded steel plate has been measured by the shearographic interferometer and then compared with the out-of-plane displacement derivative computed from the displacement field provided by the finite element method. The results are in good agreement. [less ▲]

The efficiency of the transmission of surface plasmon waves by use of a dielectric diffraction grating is discussed. The Kretschmann device allows us to obtain a surface plasmon resonance that consists of an absorption peak in the reflection spectrum. When surface plasmon resonance occurs, the TM-polarization mode of the incident electromagnetic wave is neither transmitted nor reflected. The procedure to transform an absorption peak into a transmission peak is described. Transmittivity of 68% is obtained for a simple structure that consists of a thin-film layer of Ag coated on a volume diffraction grating and embedded between two dielectric media. The results presented herein were obtained by numerical simulations that were carried out by use of an algorithm based on the rigorous coupled-wave theory. [less ▲]
