AbstractThis paper presents a novel method to extract the phase shift and phase distribution from two interferograms simultaneously. By employing Hilbert–Huang transform based prefiltering, the background intensities and modulation amplitudes of the two interferograms are suppressed and normalized respectively. With the addition and subtraction operation of the two prefiltered interferograms, two parametric equations are achieved which can be regarded as the complex harmonic motion of the Lissajous figure. The phase of the Lissajous figure can be directly demodulated by the ellipse fitting algorithm. Apart from the advantages of other well-known two-step phase demodulation algorithms, i.e., high accuracy and efficiency of the Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization (GS) method and the less stringent requirement concerning the fringe number in the extreme value of interference (EVI) method, proposed Lissajous figure and ellipse fitting (LEF) approach has another bonus related to its robustness to the fluctuations of the fringe patterns noise, background intensity and modulation amplitude. Simulations demonstrate the outstanding performance of the proposed method, and experiments further corroborate its effectiveness.
