    Automated Dielectric Thermoscopy Characterization of Water Contaminated Grease2019In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 62, no 5, p. 859-867Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Machine maintenance is important for improving machine uptime, reliability, and reducing costs. Grease is used in most rolling element bearings, and one common failure criterion is water contamination, so developing a sensor which can detect water content automatically without human input could be a useful endeavor. The temperature dependence on the dielectric properties of water-contaminated grease is investigated in this paper with computer logged instrumentation. This method has been termed Dielectric Thermoscopy (DT). Several off the shelf (two lithium, one lithium complex, and two calcium sulphonate complex) and one unadditivized lithium grease are tested with varying amounts of water contamination from 0% to approximately 5%. Another grease is tested with small increments of added water from 0% to 0.97% to test the resolution of the measurement. The purpose is to use the capacitance temperature slope (termed dielectric thermoscopy) to show correlations to the water content of the grease sample and investigate if any grease types will pose problems in the measurement. A small, custom made fringe field capacitance sensor with an integrated temperature sensor has been used for this characterization and data is logged automatically with laboratory equipment and a PC. A useable and positive correlation to water content and the DT measurement of roughly 0.5 pF per 10 °C and percentage of water is found, although it was found that some greases have different behavior than others.

    Gradient Correlation Functions in Digital Image Correlation2019In: Applied Sciences, E-ISSN 2076-3417, Vol. 9, no 10, article id 2127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The performance of seven different correlation functions applied in Digital Image Correlation has been investigated using simulated and experimentally acquired laser speckle patterns. The correlation functions were constructed as combinations of the pure intensity correlation function, the gradient correlation function and the Hessian correlation function, respectively. It was found that the correlation function that was constructed as the product of all three pure correlation functions performed best for the small speckle sizes and large correlation values, respectively. The difference between the different functions disappeared as the speckle size increased and the correlation value dropped. On average, the random error of the combined correlation function was half that of the traditional intensity correlation function within the optimum region.

    Polarization-resolved dual-view holographic system for 3D inspection of scattering particles2019In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 58, no 34, p. G31-G40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A novel dual-view polarization-resolved pulsed holographic system for particle measurements is presented. Both dual-view configuration and polarization-resolved registration are well suited for particle holography. Dual-view registration improves the accuracy in the detection of 3D position and velocities, and polarization-resolved registration provides polarization information about individual particles. The necessary calibrations are presented, and aberrations are compensated for by mapping the positions in the two views to positions in a global coordinate system. The system is demonstrated on a sample consisting of 7 μm spherical polystyrene particles dissolved in water in a cuvette. The system is tested with different polarizations of the illumination. It is found that the dual view improves the accuracy significantly in particle tracking. It is also found that by having polarization-resolved holograms, it is possible to separate naturally occurring sub-micrometer particles from the larger, 7 μm seeding particles.

    Towards intelligent and sustainable production systems with a zero-defect manufacturing approach in an Industry4.0 context2019In: Procedia CIRP, vol 81 / [ed] Edited by Peter Butala, Edvard Govekar, Rok Vrabič, Elsevier, 2019, Vol. 81, p. 880-885Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper addresses intelligent and sustainable production achieved through combination and integration of online predictive maintenance, monitoring of process parameters and continuous quality control of both input materials and output from the process. This enables production systems, within both manufacturing and process industries, to move towards zero-defect manufacturing. Such a zero-defect manufacturing approach allows for earlier identification of problems or issues, which will or already negatively affect the output. The paper outlines the first part of the second cycle of an action research effort at Gestamp HardTech AB in Sweden, whose objective is to keep its position as a world-leading provider of press-hardened vehicle parts. In order to fully implement the zero-defect manufacturing approach, 4-6 action research cycles are expected to be needed in order to iteratively refine the approach. During the first cycle, various methods and solutions for some of the individual issues/problems have been conceptualized, realized and initially tested. The selected design criteria for the action research efforts were: simplicity, low cost, robustness, high-quality output and future-proofing. The result from the research in the second cycle so far is an action plan for the technical change and a set of challenges/problems which need additional investigation.

    Comparison between process simulation and deformation measured by defocused speckle photography2018In: Speckle 2018: VII International Conference On Speckle Metrology / [ed] M. Kujawińska ; L. R. Jaroszewicz, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2018, Vol. 10834, article id 108341KConference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Defocused laser speckle photography is used as a tool to measure the heat responses in a titanium component during laser heating. The evolution of the response is compared with a set of preprocessed Finite Element Simulations of the corresponding process with the aim to verify the simulation model and to find the simulation settings that best resemble the experimental results. The titanium component consists of a 300 x 100 mm2 substrate of thickness 3.2 mm on which a 200 x 30 x 11 mm3 ridge is built up using the laser metal deposition by wire process. The component is heated on the top of the ridge by a 300 W laser for 10 s and the deformation of the subtrate is followed throughout the heating-cooling cycle. The simulated deformation gradient is shown to resemble the measured response, and the magnitude of the response indicates that about 70 % of the laser power transferres into heat in the metal.

    Improved particle position accuracy from off-axis holograms using a Chebyshev model2018In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 57, no 1, p. A157-A163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Side scattered light from micrometer-sized particles is recorded using an off-axis digital holographic setup. From holograms, a volume is reconstructed with information about both intensity and phase. Finding particle positions is non-trivial, since poor axial resolution elongates particles in the reconstruction. To overcome this problem, the reconstructed wavefront around a particle is used to find the axial position. The method is based on the change in the sign of the curvature around the true particle position plane. The wavefront curvature is directly linked to the phase response in the reconstruction. In this paper we propose a new method of estimating the curvature based on a parametric model. The model is based on Chebyshev polynomials and is fit to the phase anomaly and compared to a plane wave in the reconstructed volume. From the model coefficients, it is possible to find particle locations. Simulated results show increased performance in the presence of noise, compared to the use of finite difference methods. The standard deviation is decreased from 3–39 μm to 6–10 μm for varying noise levels. Experimental results show a corresponding improvement where the standard deviation is decreased from 18 μm to 13 μm.

    Measurement of selective species concentration using spectroscopic holography2018In: Speckle 2018: VII International Conference on Speckle Metrology / [ed] M. Kujawińska ; L. R. Jaroszewicz, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2018, Vol. 10834, article id 108340PConference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spectroscopic holography refers to techniques in which the detected hologram contains information about specific species in the medium under study. In general, at least two lasers are required with wavelengths chosen carefully to fit the interaction process utilized. In this process, energy from the shorter wavelength laser beam is transferred to the longer wavelength coherently through the process of stimulated emission. Two interaction mechanisms are considered; Stimulated Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) and Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS), which both are species specific with the ability of coherent interaction. In this paper, the fundamental properties of spectroscopic holography is presented and demonstrated with a few idealized experiments. These validation experiments are performed in a gas chamber in which different gases may be blended and the gas pressure changed between 1-12 bars. In addition, two examples of applications are presented. In the first set of experiments, LIF holography is used to image light absorption and laser heating in a dye simultaneously. The second set of experiments is performed in a ow of methane gas. It is demonstrated that the combination of holographic phase measurements and SRS gain images may be used for calibration. This calibration may further be used to measure absolute concentration in a burning flame.

    Optical Attenuation Characterization of Water Contaminated Lubricating Grease2018In: Tribology Transactions, ISSN 1040-2004, E-ISSN 1547-397X, Vol. 61, no 4, p. 726-732Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Water-contaminated grease samples are investigated with attenuation spectra in the visible and near-infrared (NIR) regions in this article. The purpose of this investigation was to identify a model with optical attenuation spectra such that the water content of grease samples could be characterized with a simple measurement setup using common methodology from the field of instrumental chemistry. The ratio between two chosen wavelengths of light appears to approximate the water content of grease samples with an acceptable coefficient of determination using a methodology to show what can potentially be done to develop condition monitoring tools. To illustrate the outlined method, a prestudy of grease aging and oxidation levels is also investigated to show that other variables do not significantly change the measurement.

    Quantitative measurement of thin phase objects: comparison of speckle deflectometry and defocus-variant lateral shear interferometry2018In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 57, no 14, p. 3645-3652Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The two techniques of lateral shear interferometry and speckle deflectometry are analyzed in a common optical system for their ability to measure phase gradient fields of a thin phase object. The optical system is designed to introduce a shear in the frequency domain of a telecentric imaging system that gives a sensitivity of both techniques in proportion to the defocus introduced. In this implementation, both techniques successfully measure the horizontal component of the phase gradient field. The response of both techniques scales linearly with the defocus distance, and the precision is comparative, with a random error in the order of a few rad/mm. It is further concluded that the precision of the two techniques relates to the transverse speckle size in opposite ways. While a large spatial coherence width, and correspondingly a large lateral speckle size, makes lateral shear interferometry less susceptible to defocus, a large lateral speckle size is detrimental for speckle correlation. The susceptibility for the magnitude of the defocus is larger for the lateral shear interferometry technique as compared to the speckle deflectometry technique. The two techniques provide the same type of information; however, there are a few fundamental differences. Lateral shear interferometry relies on a special hardware configuration in which the shear angle is intrinsically integrated into the system. The design of a system sensitive to both in-plane phase gradient components requires a more complex configuration and is not considered in this paper. Speckle deflectometry, on the other hand, requires no special hardware, and both components of the phase gradient field are given directly from the measured speckle deformation field.

    Virtual projective shape matching in targetless CAD-based close-range photogrammetry for efficient estimation of specific deviations2018In: Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE, ISSN 0091-3286, E-ISSN 1560-2303, Vol. 57, no 5, article id 053110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A concept for targetless, computer-aided design (CAD)-based, close-range photogrammetry for online shape inspection is introduced. The shape of an object, which is arbitrarily located on a conveyor belt, is to be measured and compared with its nominal shape as defined by a CAD model. For most manufactured objects, deviations are only measured at a few given comparison points. These deviations can be estimated using local photogrammetry based on a priori geometrical information given by the CAD model and the comparison points. Our method results in faster output with higher precision, because we do not generate a shape representation of the entire measured object using typical photogrammetric methods. Images depicting the object from convergent angles are captured by an array of cameras in a precalibrated network, and the CAD model is matched and aligned, within the projective geometry of the camera network, to the depicted object in the images without the use of targets. An algorithm for solving this virtual projective targetless shape matching problem is presented.

    Investigation of snow single scattering properties of snow based on first order Legendre phase function2017In: Optics and lasers in engineering, ISSN 0143-8166, E-ISSN 1873-0302, Vol. 91, p. 151-159Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Angularly resolved bidirectional reflectance measurements were modelled by ap- proximating a first order Legendre expanded phase function to retrieve single scattering properties of snow. The measurements from 10 different snow types with known density and specific surface area (SSA) were investigated. A near infrared (NIR) spectrometer was used to measure reflected light above the snow surface over the hemisphere in the wavelength region 900 nm to 1650 nm. A solver based on discrete ordinate radiative transfer (DISORT) model was used to retrieve the estimated Legendre coefficients of the phase function and a cor- relation between the coefficients and physical properties of different snow types is investigated. Results of this study suggest that the first two coefficients of the first order Legendre phase function provide sufficient information about the physical properties of snow where the latter captures the anisotropic behaviour of snow and the former provides a relative estimate of the single scattering albedo of snow. The coefficients of the first order phase function were com- pared with the experimental data and observed that both the coefficients are in good agreement with the experimental data. These findings suggest that our approach can be applied as a qualitative tool to investigate physical properties of snow and also to classify different snow types.

    Single-shot polarization digital holography for recording stimulated Raman scattering signal for time-resolved measurement of gaseous species2017In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 56, no 36, p. 10016-10023Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) process is sensitive to the relation between the polarization direction of the two laser beams (the pump and the Stokes) that generate it. In this paper, we made use of the polarization sensitivity of the SRS process and used polarization-resolved pulsed digital holography to record the signal from one single-shot hologram. The pump beam polarization was kept vertical, while the Stokes beam polarization was 45 deg. The two polarization components of the Stokes beam were recorded in a single hologram by blending the Stokes beam with two reference beams with orthogonal polarization on the detector. The two components of the Stokes beam were separated in the Fourier domain, and the corresponding intensity maps were calculated. The vertically polarized component of the Stokes beam was amplified due to the SRS process, while the horizontal component experienced no gain. The difference between the vertically and horizontally polarized intensity maps, respectively, was calculated and Fourier transformed to separate the gain signal in the spatial frequency domain. The method was demonstrated on methane (CH4) gas at a pressure of 12 bars. Results show that SRS polarization holography is a promising technique for recording the SRS signal from one single-shot hologram for time-resolved monitoring of specific species.

    Automatic in-line inspection of shape based on photogrammetry2016In: SPS16, Lund: SPS16 , 2016, , p. 9Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We are describing a fully automatic in-line shape inspection system for controlling the shape of moving objects on a conveyor belt. The shapes of the objects are measured using a full-field optical shape measurement method based on photogrammetry. The photogrammetry system consists of four cameras, a flash, and a triggering device. When an object to be measured arrives at a given position relative to the system, the flash and cameras are synchronously triggered to capture images of the moving object. From the captured images a point-cloud representing the measured shape is created. The point-cloud is then aligned to a CAD-model, which defines the nominal shape of the measured object, using a best-fit method and a feature-based alignment method. Deviations between the point-cloud and the CAD-model are computed giving the output of the inspection process. The computational time to create a point-cloud from the captured images is about 30 seconds and the computational time for the comparison with the CAD-model is about ten milliseconds. We report on recent progress with the shape inspection system.

    Estimation of a low-order Legendre expanded phase function of snow2016In: Optics and lasers in engineering, ISSN 0143-8166, E-ISSN 1873-0302, Vol. 78, p. 174-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to estimate the scattering phase function of snow from angularly resolved measurements of light intensity in the plane of incidence. A solver is implemented that solves the scattering function for a semi-infinite geometry based on the radiative transfer equation (RTE). Two types of phase functions are considered. The first type is the general phase function based on a low-order series expansion of Legendre polynomials and the other type is the Henyey-Greenstein (HG) phase function. The measurements were performed at a wavelength of 1310 nm and six different snow samples were analysed. It was found that a first order expansion provides sufficient approximation to the measurements. The fit from the first order phase function outperforms that of the HG phase function in terms of accuracy, ease of implementation and computation time. Furthermore, a correlation between the magnitude of the first order component and the age of the snow was found. We believe that these findings may complement present non-contact detection techniques used to determine snow properties.

    Full-field 3D deformation measurement: Comparison between speckle phase and displacement evaluation2016In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 55, no 27, p. 7735-7743Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to describe a full-field deformation measurement method based on 3D speckle displacements. The deformation is evaluated from the slope of the speckle displacement function that connects the different reconstruction planes. For our experiment, a symmetrical arrangement with four illuminations parallel to the planes (x,z) and (y,z) was used. Four sets of speckle patterns were sequentially recorded by illuminating an object from the four directions, respectively. A single camera is used to record the holograms before and after deformations. Digital speckle photography is then used to calculate relative speckle displacements in each direction between two numerically propagated planes. The 3D speckle displacements vector is calculated as a combination of the speckle displacements from the holograms recorded in each illumination direction. Using the speckle displacements, problems associated with rigid body movements and phase wrapping are avoided. In our experiment, the procedure is shown to give the theoretical accuracy of 0.17 pixels yielding the accuracy of 2 × 10-3 in the measurement of deformation gradients

    Multiwavelength laser designed for single-frame digital holography2016In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 55, no 27, p. 7517-7521Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we present a tailored multiwavelength Yb-fiber laser source in the 1.03 μm spectral region for spatially multiplexed digital holographic acquisitions. The wavelengths with bandwidths below 0.1 nm were spectrally separated by approximately 1 nm by employing fiber Bragg gratings for spectral control. As a proof of concept, the shape of a cylindrically shaped object with a diameter of 48 mm was measured. The holographic acquisition was performed in single-shot dual-wavelength mode with a synthetic wavelength of 1.1 mm, and the accuracy was estimated to be 3% of the synthetic wavelength.

    Off-axis digital holographic particle positioning based on polarization-sensitive wavefront curvature estimation2016In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 55, no 27, p. 7503-7510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Poor axial resolution in holographic particle imaging applications makes particle positioning in 3D space morecomplex since the positions are not directly obtained. In this paper we estimate the axial position of micrometerparticles by finding the location where the wavefront curvature from the scattered light becomes zero. By record-ing scattered light at 90°using off-axis holography, the complex amplitude of the light is obtained. Byreconstruction of the imaged scene, a complex valued volume is produced. From this volume, phase gradientsare calculated for each particle and used to estimate the wavefront curvature. From simulations it is found that thewavefront curvature became zero at the true axial position of the particle. We applied this metric to track an axialtranslation experimentally using a telecentric off-axis holographic imaging system with a lateral magnification ofM1.33. A silicon cube with molded particles inside was used as sample. Holographic recordings are performedboth before and after a 100μm axial translation. From the estimated positions, it was found that the mean dis-placement of particles between recordings was 105.0μm with a standard deviation of 25.3μm.

    Road condition analysis using NIR illumination and compensating for surrounding light2016In: Optics and lasers in engineering, ISSN 0143-8166, E-ISSN 1873-0302, Vol. 77, p. 175-182Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An investigation of a NIR camera system for road surface classification has been conducted for several road conditions. The surfaces were illuminated with three wavelengths, 980 nm, 1310 nm and 1550 nm and a halogen lamp, to simulate a real environment application with surrounding light. A measuring scheme to deal with surrounding light has been implemented enabling road condition classification from NIR images in a real environment. The retrieved camera images have been analyzed and an RGB representation of the different surfaces has been created to classify the different road conditions. The investigation shows that it is possible to distinguish between dry, moist, wet, frosty, icy and snowy road surfaces using a NIR camera system in a disturbed environment.

    Stimulated Raman scattering detection for chemically specific time-resolved imaging of gases2016In: Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087, E-ISSN 1094-4087, Vol. 24, no 9, p. 9984-9993Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) imaging technique based on spatial modulation of the pump beam has been used to study gases. The SRS gain signal was separated from the Stokes beam background in the spatial frequency domain. The SRS signal shows linear behaviour with the gas pressure at a range from 1.0 to 8.0 bars. The signal is linearly proportional to the pump beam intensity while it is enhanced with increasing the Stokes beam intensity to a certain limit than it saturates. Further, the chemical specificity of the technique has been investigated. Two sharp peaks with line width at half maximum of about 0.30 nm have been obtained at Stokes beam wavelengths of 629.93 nm and 634.05 nm corresponding to the methane and ethylene gases, respectively. The results show that SRS imaging is a promising technique to provide chemical specificity as well as spatial and temporal information of gaseous species

    Stimulated Raman scattering holography for time-resolved imaging of methane gas2016In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 55, no 13, p. 3429-3434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, pulsed digital holographic detection is coupled to the stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) process for imaging gases. A Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (532 nm) has been used to pump methane gas (CH4) at pressures up to 12 bars. The frequency-tripled (355 nm) beam from the same laser was used to pump an optical parametric oscillator (OPO). The Stokes beam (from the OPO) has been tuned to 629.93 nm so that the frequency difference between the pump (532 nm) and the Stokes beams fits a Raman active vibrational mode of the methane molecule (2922 cm(-1)). The pump beam has been spatially modulated with fringes produced in a Michelson interferometer. The pump and the Stokes beams were overlapped in time, space, and polarization on the gas molecules, resulting in a stimulated Raman gain of the Stokes beam and a corresponding loss of the pump beam through the SRS process. The resulting gain of the Stokes beam has been detected using pulsed digital holography by blending it with a reference beam on the detector. Two holograms of the Stokes beam, without and with the pump beam fringes present, were recorded. Intensity maps calculated from the recorded digital holograms showed amplification of the Stokes beam at the position of overlap with the pump beam fringes and the gas molecules. The gain of the Stokes beam has been separated from the background in the Fourier domain. A gain of about 4.5% at a pump beam average intensity of 4 MW/cm(2) and a Stokes beam intensity of 0.16 MW/cm(2) have been recorded at a gas pressure of 12 bars. The gain decreased linearly with decreasing gas pressure. The results show that SRS holography is a promising technique to pinpoint a specific species and record its spatial and temporal distribution

    A 3D in-situ investigation of the deformation in compressive loading in the thickness direction of cellulose fiber mats2015In: Cellulose (London), ISSN 0969-0239, E-ISSN 1572-882X, Vol. 22, no 5, p. 2993-3001Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fiber mat materials based on cellulose natural fibers combines a useful set of properties, including renewability, stiffness, strength and dielectric insulation, etc. The dominant in-plane fiber orientation ensures the in-plane performance, at the expense of reduced out-of-plane behavior, which has not been studied as extensively as the in-plane behavior. Quantitative use of X-ray micro-computed tomography and strain analyses under in-situ loading open up possibilities to identify key mechanisms responsible for deformation. In the present investigation, focus is placed on the out-of-plane deformation under compressive loading of thick, high density paper, known as pressboard. The samples were compressed in the chamber of a microtomographic scanner. 3D images were captured before and after the loading the sample. From sequential 3D images, the strain field inside the material was calculated using digital volume correlation. Two different test pieces were tested, namely unpolished and surface polished ones. The first principal strain component of the strain tensor showed a significant correlation with the density variation in the material, in particular on the top and bottom surfaces of unpolished samples. The manufacturing-induced grooves generate inhomogeneities in the microstructure of the surface, thus creating high strain concentration zones which give a sensible contribution to the overall compliance of the unpolished material. More generally, the results reveal that, on the micrometer scale, high density fiber pressboard behaves as a porous material rather than a low density fiber network.

    Analysis of the Micromechanical Deformation in Pressboard performed by X-ray Microtomography2015In: IEEE Electrical Insulation Conference (EIC): Seattle, Jun 07-10, 2015, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2015, p. 89-92Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A large number of electrical insulation components are produced in paper-based materials. Paper combines good insulating properties with the necessary mechanical and chemical stability. Paper consists of a system of fibers binding to each other creating a strong network. The presence of large open pores allows for impregnability of the material but also causes mechanical weakness in particular in the out-of-plane direction of the material. This aspect is important for pressboard components, where the resistance to compression stress is relevant for e.g. transformer windings. It is therefore relevant to understand the mechanisms that underlay the out-of-plane deformation of pressboard. In order to get a clear picture of the deformation patterns within the material, X-ray micro-computed tomography was used. Pressboard test pieces were subjected to in-situ out-of-plane compressive loading. 3D images of the sample could be captured before, during and after the loading sequence. Image analysis allowed for the definition of strain fields. The results revealed a strong correlation between the density variation within the sample and the strain calculated from the 3D images.

    Fast and robust automatic calibration for single-shot dual-wavelength digital holography based on speckle displacements2015In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 54, no 16, p. 5003-5010Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to describe a fast and robust automatic single-shot dual-wavelength holographic calibration method that can be used for online shape measurement applications. We present a model of the correction in two terms for each lobe, one to compensate the systematic errors caused by off-axis angles and the other for the curvature of the reference waves, respectively. Each hologram is calibrated independently without a need for an iterative procedure or information of the experimental set-up. The calibration parameters are extracted directly from speckle displacements between different reconstruction planes. The parameters can be defined as any fraction of a pixel to avoid the effect of quantization. Using the speckle displacements, problems associated with phase wrapping is avoided. The procedure is shown to give a shape accuracy of 34 μm using a synthetic wavelength of 1.1 mm for a measurement on a cylindrical test object with a trace over a field of view of 18  mm×18  mm.

    High resolution digital holographic microscopy for the study of aggregated natural cellulose nanowhisker fibers2015In: Optics and lasers in engineering, ISSN 0143-8166, E-ISSN 1873-0302, Vol. 73, p. 69-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, digital holographic (DH) microscopy demonstrates its ability to perform a full characterization of nanofibers. The high resolution and magnification of the presented method to study the nanofibers are tested using standard MIL-STD-150A 1951 USAF resolution test target. In this investigation, aggregated natural cellulose nanowhisker fibers are positioned in the front of the microscopic objective using a 3D translation stage in the object arm of DH setup. The recorded off-axis holograms are refocused using the angular spectrum method. The reconstructed complex field is used to calculate optical phase and intensity distributions of the object at different reconstruction depths. A simple algorithm is used to define the focused image with suitable accuracy. The dimensions and orientation of the fibers can be evaluated from the optical field at different depths. Then, the shape and textures along the aggregated natural cellulose nanowhisker fiber can be presented in a 3D space.

    Local strain field measurement using phase gradient estimation from holographic speckle correlation2015In: SPECKLE 2015: VI International Conference on Speckle Metrology : 24-26 August 2015, Guanajuato, México / [ed] Fernando Mendoza Santoyo, Washington: SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2015, article id 966004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a new approach to process holographic specklegrams that gives direct access to local phase gradients. For a full in-plane strain mapping at least three different sensitivity vectors have to be used, if only one principal strain component is of interest two sensitivity vectors suffices. The fields in two defocused planes are calculated by propagating the focused field a known distance numerically. Based on the fields in the three planes a correlation function is formulated that is used to estimate the local phase gradients generated by stressing the sample. The phase and phase gradients for the different sensitivity vectors are then further combined to give the in-plane deformation and strain fields, respectively. The technique was demonstrated on a plate stressed uniaxially. Two illumination directions were used symmetrically oriented in the horisontal plane in relation to the surface normal to the plate. A significant reduction in phase noise was demonstrated. In addition the in-plane strain was estimated to be 0.8 mstrain with a standard deviation of 10 μstrain using an evaluation window size of 15x15 pixels. The average speckle correlation for this case was found to be 0.92. This technique promises to be a valuable tool whenever high quality measurements of strain fields or surface tilts are of interest

    Single-shot dual-polarization holography: measurement of the polarization state of a magnetic sample2015In: SPECKLE 2015: VI International Conference on Speckle Metrology / [ed] Fernando Mendoza Santoyo; Eugenio R. Mendez, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper a single-shot digital holographic set-up with two orthogonally polarized reference beams is proposed to achieve rapid acquisition of Magneto-Optical Kerr Effect images. Principles of the method and the background theory for dynamic state of polarization measurement by use of digital holography are presented. This system has no mechanically moving elements or active elements for polarization control and modulation. An object beam is combined with two reference beams at different off-axis angles and is guided to a detector. Then two complex fields (interference terms) representing two orthogonal polarizations are recorded in a single frame simultaneously. Thereafter the complex fields are numerically reconstructed and carrier frequency calibration is done to remove aberrations introduced in multiplexed digital holographic recordings. From the numerical values of amplitude and phase, a real time quantitative analysis of the polarization state is possible by use of Jones vectors. The technique is demonstrated on a magnetic sample that is a lithographically patterned magnetic microstructure consisting of thin permalloy parallel stripes

    Abstract [en]

    The stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) signal in diffuse light has been recorded using an optical imaging technique based on spatial modulation. A frequency doubled Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (wavelength 532 nm) has been used to pump a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) cylinder. The frequency tripled (355 nm) beam from the same laser is used to pump an optical parametric oscillator (OPO). The Stokes beam (from the OPO) has been tuned to 631.27 nm so that the frequency difference between the pump and the Stokes beams fits a Raman active vibrational mode of the PMMA molecule (2956 cm-1). The two laser beams were overlapped in time and space on a PMMA cylinder resulting in a gain of the Stokes beam through the SRS process of about 4.0 %. For separating the SRS signal, the pump beam was spatially modulated with fringes produced in a Michelson interferometer. The gain of the Stokes beam due to SRS was separated from the Stokes beam background in the Fourier domain. The intensity image has been calculated from an inverse Fourier transform of the separated gain signal. The intensity image shows a gain of the Stokes beam at the area of overlap between the pump beam fringes and the Stokes beam compared to the undisturbed surrounding. The results show that spatial modulation of the pump beam is a promising method to separate the weak SRS signal from the Stokes beam background. This technique can be applied to pin-point specific species and record its spatial and temporal distribution

The pump and the Stokes beams were overlapped on the target resulting in a gain of the Stokes beam of roughly 2.5% and a corresponding loss of the pump beam through the SRS process. To demodulate the SRS signal, two images of the Stokes beam without and with the pump beam fringes present were recorded. The difference between these two images was calculated and Fourier transformed. Then, the gain of the Stokes beam was separated from the background in the Fourier domain. The results show that spatial modulation of the pump beam is a promising method to separate the weak SRS signal from the background.

    Dual-wavelength digital holography: single shot calibration2014In: Interferometry XVII: Techniques and Analysis, Bellingham, Wash: SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2014, article id 920305Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an on line shape measurement in disturbed environment, use of many wavelengths in order to avoid phase ambiguity may become a problem as it is necessary to acquire all holograms simultaneously due to environmental disturbances. Therefore to make the shape data available the different holograms have to be extracted from a single recorded image in spectral domain. Appropriate cut areas in the Fourier method are therefore of great importance for decoding information carried by different wavelengths. Furthermore using different laser sources, induces aberration and pseudo phase changes which must be compensated. To insure any phase change is only because of the object shape, calibration is therefore indispensable. For this purpose, effects of uncontrolled carrier frequency filtering are discussed. A registration procedure is applied using minimum speckle displacements to find the best cut area to extract and match the interference terms. Both holograms are numerically propagated to a focus plane to avoid any unknown errors. Deviations between a reference known plate and its measurement are found and used for calibration. We demonstrate that phase maps and speckle displacements can be recovered free of chromatic aberrations. To our knowledge, this is the first time that a single shot dual wavelength calibration is reported by defining a criteria to make the spatial filtering automatic avoiding the problems of manual methods. The procedure is shown to give shape accuracy of 35μm with negligible systematic errors using a synthetic wavelength of 1.1 mm.

    Single shot shape evaluation using dual-wavelength holographic reconstructions and regularization2014In: Fringe 2013: 7th International Workshop on Advanced Optical Imaging and Metrology / [ed] Wolfgang Osten, Berlin: Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology/Springer Verlag, 2014, p. 103-108Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this work is to evaluate the shape of a free form object using single shot digital holography. The digital holography results in a gradient field and wrapped phase maps representing the shape of the object. The task is then to find a surface representation from this data which is an inverse problem. To solve this inverse problem we are using regularization with additional shape information from the CAD-model of the measured object.

    Consideration of X-ray microtomography to quantitatively determine the size distribution of bubble cavities in iron ore pellets2013In: Powder Technology, ISSN 0032-5910, E-ISSN 1873-328X, Vol. 233, p. 312-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    X-ray microtomography data of iron ore green pellets of approx. 12 mm in diameter were recorded using a commercial instrument. The reconstructed volume after thresholding represented a unique dataset consisting of a three-dimensional distribution of equiaxed objects corresponding to bubble cavities. This dataset was used to successfully validate a stereological method to determine the size distribution of spherical objects dispersed in a volume. This was achieved by investigating only a few cross-sectional images of this volume and measuring the profiles left by these objects in the cross-sectional images. Excellent agreement was observed between the size distribution of the bubble cavities obtained by directly classifying their size in the reconstructed volume and that estimated by applying the aforementioned stereological method to eight cross-sectional images of the reconstructed volume. Subsequently, we discuss the possibility of calibrating X-ray tomography data quantitatively using the size distribution of the bubble cavities as a figure of merit and the results obtained by applying the stereological method to SEM images as reference data. This was justified by considering the validity of the stereological method demonstrated by tomography, the accurate thresholding made possible by back-scattered electron imaging and the solid reproducibility of the results obtained by SEM. Using different threshold values for binarization of the X-ray microtomography data and comparing the results to those obtained by SEM, we found that X-ray microtomography can be used after proper calibration against SEM data to measure the total porosity of the bubble cavities but can only provide a rough estimate of the median diameter because of the limited resolution achieved in this study.

    Digital holographic microscopy for the study of nano-fibers2013In: Optical Measurement Systems for Industrial Inspection VIII / [ed] Peter H. Lehmann; Wolfgang Osten; Armando Albertazzi, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The advantages of digital holographic microscopy to record not only the intensity but also the optical phase are employed. The experimental arrangement comprises a Mach-Zehnder type interferometer with a microscopic objective of magnification 100x. The used camera is a 5 Mpixels Allied Vision Guppy Pro F-503 with a pixel pitch of 2.2 μm. The lateral magnification is set to about 200x based on the standard MIL-STD-150A 1951 USAF resolution test target. The dimensions of the aggregated natural cellulose nanowhisker fibers used are in the range of some hundreds of nanometers, which are positioned in the front of the microscopic objective using a 3D translation stage in the object arm of the holographic setup. The recorded off-axis holograms are refocused using the angular spectrum method. The reconstructed complex field is used to calculate optical phase and intensity distributions of the object at different reconstructions depths. The dimensions and orientation of the fibers can be evaluated from the optical field at different depths. Then, the shape and textures along the aggregated natural cellulose nanowhisker fiber can be presented in 3D space. The nano fiber found to have the dimensions of mean width 223 nm, depth 308 nm and length of 8.1 μm. Further, the mean local refractive index of the nano fibers can be calculated (n=1.501).

    Dual-wavelength digital holographic shape measurement using speckle movements and phase gradients2013In: Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE, ISSN 0091-3286, E-ISSN 1560-2303, Vol. 52, no 10, article id 101912Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new method to measure shape by analyzing the speckle movements in images generated by numerical propagation from dual-wavelength holograms is presented. The relationship of the speckle movements at different focal distances is formulated, and it is shown how this carries information about the surface position as well as the local slope of the object. It is experimentally verified that dual-wavelength holography and numerically generated speckle images can be used together with digital speckle correlation to retrieve the object shape. From a measurement on a cylindrical test object, the method is demonstrated to have a random error in the order of a few micrometers.

    Dynamic properties of multispectral speckles in digital holography and image correlation2013In: Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE, ISSN 0091-3286, E-ISSN 1560-2303, Vol. 52, no 10, article id 101908Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I discuss dynamic properties of multispectral speckle in the context of digital holographic interferometry and image correlation. I outline the correlation of speckles in free space, in an imaging system, and, in the case of interferometric detection, caused by reflection off an inclined diffuse surface. It is shown that interferometric phase gradients and speckle movements are closely related where in fact the phase gradients are the generator of speckle movements in a defocused plane. The theory is exemplified by three typical situations encountered in image-plane digital holographic interferometry.

    Shape reconstruction using dual wavelength digital holography and speckle movements2013In: Optical Measurement Systems for Industrial Inspection VIII, / [ed] Peter H. Lehmann; Wolfgang Osten; Armando Albertazzi, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new technique to measure depth based on dual wavelength digital holography and image correlation of speckle movements is demonstrated. By numerical refocusing of the complex optical field to different focus planes and by measuring the speckle movements caused by a wavelength shift both the object surface position and its local slope can be determined. It is shown how the speckle movement varies linearly with the surface slope, the wavelength shift and the distance of the numerical propagation. This gives a possibility to measure the slope with approximately the same precision as from the interferometric phase maps. In addition, when the object surface is in focus there is no speckle movement so by estimating in what plane the speckle movement is zero the absolute surface position can be measured.

    Simplified model for light scattering from granular materials with varying moisture content2013In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 52, no 17, p. 4006-4012Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reflection measurements were performed on dry and moistened sand grains and glass spheres, respectively. A simple model for determining the water content is proposed from looking at the reflection distribution in the plane of incidence. The model is a combination of two sheared cosine-functions and consists of only two parameters. One parameter controls whether the reflection is mainly in the forward or backward direction. The former is true when the water content is high and the latter is true when the material is dry. The other parameter gives an idea of the homogeneity of the material.

    Stimulated laser induced fluorescence holography for imaging fluorescent species2013In: Optics Communications, ISSN 0030-4018, E-ISSN 1873-0310, Vol. 311, p. 124-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper pulsed digital holographic detection is coupled to the stimulated laser induced fluorescence (LIF) effect for imaging fluorescent species. A frequency tripled Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (wavelength 355 nm, pulse duration 12 ns) has been used to pump Coumarin 153 dye solved in ethanol. Simultaneously a frequency doubled pulse (532 nm) from the same laser is used to probe the solvent resulting in a gain through stimulated emission. The resulting gain of the probe beam is recorded using digital holography by blending it with a reference beam on the detector. Intensity maps were calculated from the recorded digital holograms and used to calculate the gain of the probe beam due to stimulated fluorescence emission which is coupled to the concentration of the dye. The results show that the amplification of the probe beam (532 nm) due to stimulated LIF emission is seen in the intensity maps. The gain is about 40% at a dye concentration of 0.32 g/L and decreases to be about 20% at a dye concentration of 0.04 g/L for a probe beam energy density of 0.1 mJ/cm2. Spectroscopic measurements have been carried out to confirm the holographic results. The results show that stimulated LIF holography is a promising technique for quantitative imaging of fluorescent species.

    Stimulated LIF studied using pulsed digital holography and modelling2013In: Optical Measurement Systems for Industrial Inspection VIII / [ed] Peter H. Lehmann; Wolfgang Osten; Armando Albertazzi, SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A frequency tripled Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (wavelength 355 nm, pulse duration 12 ns) has been used to pump Coumarin 153 dye solved in ethanol. The laser induced fluorescence (LIF) spectrum has been recorded using a spectrometer at different dye concentrations. The frequency doubled 532 nm beam from the same laser is used as a probe beam to pass through the excited volume of the dye. Because of stimulated emission an increase of the probe (532 nm) beam energy is recorded and a reduction of the spontaneous fluorescence spectrum intensity is observed. A model was developed that approaches the trend of the gain as a function of the probe beam energy at low dye concentrations (less than 0.08 g/L). The stimulated LIF is further recorded using digital holography. Digital holograms were recorded for different dye concentrations using collimated laser light (532 nm) passed through the dye volume. Two holograms without and with the UV laser beam were recorded. Intensity maps were calculated from the recorded digital holograms and are used to calculate the gain of the green laser beam due to the stimulated fluorescence emission which is coupled to the dye concentration. The gain of the coherent 532 nm beam is seen in the intensity maps and its value is about 40% for a dye concentration of 0.32 g/L and decreases with the decrease of the dye concentration. The results show that pulsed digital holography can be coupled to the stimulated LIF effect for imaging fluorescent species

    UV laser interaction with a fluorescent dye solution studied using pulsed digital holography2013In: Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087, E-ISSN 1094-4087, Vol. 21, no 21, p. 25316-25323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A frequency tripled Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (wavelength 355 nm, pulse duration 12 ns) has been used to pump Coumarin 153 dye solved in ethanol. Simultaneously, a frequency doubled pulse (532 nm) from the same laser is used to probe the solvent perpendicularly resulting in a gain through stimulated laser induced fluorescence (LIF) emission. The resulting gain of the probe beam is recorded using digital holography by blending it with a reference beam on the detector. Two digital holograms without and with the pump beam were recorded. Intensity maps were calculated from the recorded digital holograms and used to calculate the gain of the probe beam due to the stimulated LIF. In addition numerical data of the local temperature rise was calculated from the corresponding phase maps using Radon inversion. It was concluded that about 15% of the pump beam energy is transferred to the dye solution as heat while the rest is consumed in the radiative process. The results show that pulsed digital holography is a promising technique for quantitative study of fluorescent species

    Digital volume correlation applied to compaction of granular materials2012In: Procedia IUTAM, ISSN 2210-9838, E-ISSN 2210-9838, Vol. 4, p. 179-195Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Compaction of powders and granular materials is an important process used to manufacture products including pharmaceuticals, ceramics, metals and explosives. In order to ensure mechanical integrity of the final product, an understanding of the compaction process, with particular reference to the homogeneity of the compacted bed, is required. In particular, it is necessary to have an improved understanding of the physics of the process, which can only be achieved through appropriate experimental measurements. X-ray tomography offers the opportunity to make full-field measurements of displacements in-situ: without removing the specimens from the die. This allows researchers to better understand the processes that take place at different stages in the compaction, and to more rigorously test numerical models.In this paper, we present data obtained using Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) to measure displacements in a compacted bed of sugar, with data obtained using X-ray microtomograpy. Instead of adding tracer particles, the natural, random, microstructure of the bed is used as the pattern for the volume correlation. The displacement data obtained are then used to calculate strain fields in the bed. A novel Finite Element (FE) based smoothing technique is applied to robustly smooth the data, allowing accurate and continuous strains to be calculated. These strains are compared to those calculated from the unsmoothed data. The paper presents details of both the DVC and FE smoothing routines

    High-speed interferometric measurement and visualization of the conversion of a black liquor droplet during laser heating2012In: Optics and lasers in engineering, ISSN 0143-8166, E-ISSN 1873-0302, Vol. 50, no 11, p. 1654-1661Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Black liquor is a mix of organic and inorganic materials that is left after the kraft pulping process. In a modern pulp mill the pulping chemicals and the energy in the black liquor is recovered and used in the pulping cycle by burning the black liquor in a recovery burner. An alternative to the recovery boiler is to gasify the black liquor to produce an energy rich synthesis gas that can be upgraded into synthetic fuels or chemicals. Characterization of black liquor has mostly been done under conditions that are relevant for recovery boilers but the conditions in a gasifier differ significantly from this. In particular the droplets are much smaller and the heating rates are much higher. This paper presents an optical interferometric technique that has the potential to produce data under relevant conditions for gasification. In the paper, results are measured at atmospheric conditions and with relatively low heating rate. However, the method can be applied also for pressurized conditions and at heating rates that are only limited by the frame rate of the digital camera that is used to capture the transient event when the droplets are heated. In the paper the dynamic properties of the gas ejected from and the swelling during conversion of a single droplet are measured

    Holographic measurement of thermal distortion during laser spot welding2012In: Optical Engineering: The Journal of SPIE, ISSN 0091-3286, E-ISSN 1560-2303, Vol. 51, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Welding distortion is an important engineering topic for simulation and modeling, and there is a need for experimental verification of such models by experimental studies. High-speed pulsed digital holography is proposed as a measurement technique for out-of-plane welding distortion. To demonstrate the capability of this technique, measurements from a laser spot weld are presented. A complete twodimensional deformation map with submicrometer accuracy was acquired at a rate of 1000 measurements per second. From this map, particular points of interest can be extracted for analysis of the temporal development of the final distortion geometry.

    An investigation of different road conditions has been conducted using a short-wave infrared (SWIR) light online sensor to examine the possibility of estimating road condition parameters such as porosity, depth and roughness. These parameters are essential for non-contact road friction estimation. The investigation show that it is possible to detect changes of depths of water and ice as well as classify different types of ice, by utilising polarised short-wave infrared (SWIR) light and a modified Hapke directional reflectance model

    Multi-spectral speckles: Theory and applications2012In: Speckle 2012: : V International Conference on Speckle Metrology : 10 - 12 September 2012, Vigo, Spain / [ed] Ángel F. Doval, Bellingham, Wash.: SPIE - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to discuss the properties and a few applications of multi-spectral speckles. The paper starts with a theoretical section where the correlation properties of multi-spectral speckles are detailed for the case of reflective imaging geometry. Both a free-space geometry and an imaging geometry are detailed. As an application example effects and possibilities provided by the theory in a measurement of surface shape of a generally shaped object from a dual-wavelength holographic recording are detailed. It is showed that the same phase profile is obtained from integration of speckle movements and phase unwrapping and they are therefore exchangeable quantities

    Polarization resolved classification of winter road condition in the near-infrared region2012In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, E-ISSN 2155-3165, Vol. 51, no 15, p. 3036-3045Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Three different configurations utilizing polarized short-wave infrared light to classify winter road conditions have been investigated. In the first configuration, polarized broadband light was detected in the specular and backward directions, and the quotient between the detected intensities was used as the classification parameter. Best results were obtained for the SS-configuration. This sensor was shown to be able to distinguish between the smooth road conditions of water and ice from the diffuse road conditions of snow and dry asphalt with a probability of wrong classification as low as 7%. The second sensor configuration was a pure backward architecture utilizing polarized light with two distinct wavelengths. This configuration was shown to be effective for the important problem of distinguishing water from ice with a probability of wrong classification of only 1.5%. The third configuration was a combination of the two previous ones. This combined sensor utilizing bispectral illumination and bidirectional detection resulted in a probability of wrong classification as low as 2% among all four surfaces.
