Principles and Techniques for Optical Three-Dimensional Shape Measurements: From Macroscopic to Microscopic Objects
Because of its inherent non-contact and nondestructive nature, optical three-dimensional shape measurement has vast areas of applications in industry. The size of the objects ranges from macroscopic objects in car and aircraft industries down to microscopic objects in semiconductor industry, while the shape to be measured varies from smooth and continuous shapes in optical testing to the complex and discontinuous shapes of micro-machines and vehicle parts. To meet this wide range of demands, various principles and techniques have been developed.

In this talk we review the theory and the basic principle of optical three-dimensional shape measurements. An attempt will be made to provide a unified and systematic view on various principles of optical proferometry that are seemingly different and unrelated. We first critically review the principle of phase-measuring profilometry, and clarify the strength and the weakness of phase-measuring profilometry such as the heterodyne technique, the phase-shift technique, and Fourier transform profilometry. Then we discuss the possibilities of new approaches to overcome the weakness of the phase-measuring technique, which has been identified as the phase ambiguity. To give specific examples, we will introduce some of the technique that have been developed in my group at UEC, among which are the spatial frequency multiplex technique, a spectral interference microscope, and phase-crossing white-light interferometry.
