A dual optical configuration to inspect the internal and external mechanical response of a composite specimen is presented. The inspection simultaneously uses two equally aligned optical techniques, digital holographic interferometry and Fourier domain optical coherence tomography, to retrieve surface and internal data, respectively. The sample under study is a composite specimen of poly-methyl-methacrylate reinforced with metallic particles. Two different sets of samples are analyzed to compare their mechanical behavior. A homemade, fully controlled testing machine is used to apply a controlled compression load while each technique registers an image. In this form, the surface and internal optical phase measurements are correlated to the same compression value for comparison purposes. Results for each technique are directly presented as simultaneous displacement maps, and a discussion and conclusion of this proposed dual method of inspection are presented.
