|Title:||Proposed algorithm for phase unwrapping||Authors:||He, X.Y.
|Issue Date:||10-Dec-2002||Citation:||He, X.Y.,Kang, X.,Tay, C.J.,Quan, C.,Shang, H.M. (2002-12-10). Proposed algorithm for phase unwrapping. Applied Optics 41 (35) : 7422-7428. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||A new, to our knowledge, two-dimensional phase-unwrapping algorithm is proposed. The algorithm, which is based on the global continuity of physical information (e.g. the three-dimensional surface profile of an object) being measured, uses the principle of least-phase difference to rectify errors caused by an erroneous 2π-phase jump in the initial unwrapped phase map obtained by the conventional phase-unwrapping method. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm works well on a phase map that contains error sources, such as noises, phase discontinuity of more than π, and insufficient sampling. Moreover, the algorithm is most suitable for unwrapping a phase map generated during shape measurement with a step-change surface on the test object, which is usually a critical problem in shape measurement. © 2002 Optical Society of America.||Source Title:||Applied Optics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/61173||ISSN:||00036935|
