Abstract

An algorithm for phase demodulation of a single interferogram that may contain closed fringes is presented. This algorithm uses the regularized phase-tracker system as a robust phase estimator, together with a new scanning technique that estimates the phase that initially follows the bright zones of the interferogram. The combination of these two elements constitutes a powerful new method, the fringe-follower regularized phase tracker, that makes it possible to correctly demodulate complex, single-image interferograms for which traditional methods fail.
