Speckle shearing interferometry (shearography) is a full-field strain measurement technique that can be used in vibration analysis. In our case, we apply a method that combines the time-averaging and phase-shifting tech- niques. It produces binary phase patterns, where the phase changes are related to the zeroes of a Bessel J 0 function, typical of time-averaging. However, the contrast and resolution are better compared to traditional time-averaging. In a previous paper, we have shown that this is particularly useful in vibration testing performed under industrial conditions, because fringe patterns are noisier than in quiet laboratory environments. This paper goes a step further in proposing a processing method for estimating the vibration amplitude, for helping non-experts to identify vibration modes. Since shearography measures the spatial derivative of displacement, spatial integration is required. Prior to that, different processes like denoising, binarization, automated nodal line detection, and amplitude assignment are applied. We analyze the performance of the method on synthetic and experimental data, in the function of noise level and fringes density. Results on data acquired in an industrial environment illustrate the good performances of the proposed method. [less ▲]

Shearography can be used for full-field strain measurements in the field of vibration analysis. It provides the spatial derivative of the optical phase difference of the vibration modes amplitude along the so-called shear direction. The shearographic setup considered here is based on the phase-shifting time-averaged technique. It can easily be applied experimentally, but its drawback is that binary phase patterns are obtained. These phase changes are related to the zeroes of a Bessel function. Retrieving the corresponding displacement maps is not straightforward. Moreover, integration of shearographic results need to be performed, and this step is sensitive to noise in the patterns. In this paper, different processing stages are described, from fringe denoising to integration of the displacement maps. The application on data acquired in industrial environment illustrates the good performances of the proposed method. [less ▲]

Experimental testing of space optics is a mandatory process for investigating the optical performances in conditions close to reality. With the optical requirement level increasing over years, these experimental tests are increasingly expensive and time-consuming. A modeling tool would therefore be an elegant solution to avoid these drawbacks. For this purpose, a multiphysics approach has been used to predict how optics behave under thermal loads. In this paper, experimental surface deformations of a space mirror perturbed by thermal gradients are compared to multiphysics simulation results. The local displacements of the mirror surface have been measured by use of electronic speckle pattern interferometry, and the deformation itself has been calculated by subtracting the rigid body motion. After validation of the thermo-mechanical solution, experimental and numerical wavefront errors are compared. [less ▲]

Holographic interferometry at around 10 µm wavelengths has many advantages. It offers the possibility of large deformation measurement, while being much less sensitive to external perturbations. We present the state-of-the art of this technique applied to several industrial cases of the space industry. In particular, we demonstrate that the technique is well adapted to measurement of full-field deformation maps of space structures undergoing large temperature variations typical to what they experience in space conditions.

The manufacture of mirrors for space application is expensive and the requirements on the optical performance increase over years. To achieve higher performance, larger mirrors are manufactured but the larger the mirror the higher the sensitivity to temperature variation and therefore the higher the degradation of optical performances. To avoid the use of an expensive thermal regulation, we need to develop tools able to predict how optics behaves with thermal constraints. This paper presents the comparison between experimental surface mirror deformation and theoretical results from a multiphysics model. The local displacements of the mirror surface have been measured with the use of electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) and the deformation itself has been calculated by subtracting the rigid body motion. After validation of the mechanical model, experimental and numerical wave front errors are compared. [less ▲]

Laser ultrasonics is a technique currently studied for nondestructive inspection of aerospace composite structures based on carbon fibers. It combines a pulsed laser impacting the surface generates an ultrasound inside the material, through the nondestructive thermoelastic effect. Second a detection interferometer probes the impacted point in order to measure the displacement of the surface resulting from the emitted ultrasound wave and the echo coming back from the different interfaces of the structure. Laser ultrasonics is of interest for inspecting complex shaped composites. We have studied the possibility of using frequency doubled YAG laser for the generation and which is fiber-coupled, together with a fiber-coupled interferometric probe using a YAG laser in the NIR. Our final system is a lightweight probe attached to a robot arm and which is able to scan complex shapes. The performances of the system are compared for different wavelengths of generations. Also we have studied some experimental parameters of interest such as tolerance to angle and focus distance, and different geometries of generation beams. We show some examples of inspection of reference parts with known defects. In particular C-scans of curved composites structures are presented. [less ▲]

Locating defects in CFRP composite materials is a hot topic in nondestructive inspection (NDI). Beside classical NDI technique, such as ultrasound testing (UT), contactless techniques are actively studied. Generally manufacturers of CFRP structure incorporate artificial defects in the bulk, with different extents and depths, in order to study the performance of a specific NDI technique to detect the defect. One of the most common defects in CFRP is delamination between two layers. This is simulated by inserting teflon sheets which, like air, acts as ultrasound blocker in UT. When such reference part is used to assess NDI performance of thermography or shearography, we only observe respectively the thermal or mechanical response of teflon with respect to external loading used with these techniques. In this work, we assess other possibilities for artificial defects in CFRP matrix. For that a CFRP structure was developed and which incorporates teflon, flat-bottom holes and delamination obtained by the pull-out method. We experimentally studied the signals and we discuss the difference between the various artificial defects methods. [less ▲]

Deformation metrology of complex and large space reflectors is a recurrent problem addressed by ESA. The challenging tasks of on-ground qualification and verification testing are to achieve the required accuracy in the measurement of these reflectors deformation and to verify their performance under simulated space conditions (vacuum, low temperature). A long-wave infrared digital holographic interferometer for the verification and validation of this type of reflector in a space environment is presented. It has been developed to fill the gap between holography/interferometry techniques in the visible wavelengths and methods based on structured light illumination like videogrammetry, stereocorrelation, and fringe/pattern projection. The former provide a good measurement uncertainty but the displacements are often too large to be measured and they require a very stable environment, while the latter provide large measurement range but with higher measurement uncertainty. The new instrument is based on digital holography and uses a CO2 lasers emitting at 10.6 µm combined with a commercial thermographic camera. A diffuser is illuminated by the laser beam, producing a speckle wavefront which is observed after reflection on the reflector surface. This reflected speckle wavefront behaves exactly as if the reflector was a diffusive surface, producing its own speckle, allowing the measurement of its deformation. The advantage of this configuration compared to a classical interferometer working at 10.6 µm, is that it requires no specific optics such as a null lens (in the case of parabola) or expensive illumination/collection optics (in the case of ellipse). The metrological certification of the system was performed in the laboratory by measuring the tilts of a 1.1 meter diameter parabolic reflector. The displacements are measured in parallel with a Doppler effect interferometer and the measurement uncertainty is estimated. The technique has been certified during a thermal-vacuum test. The deformation of the parabolic reflector is measured for a temperature variation from 288 K down to 113 K. The results are compared to previous results obtained on the same reflector with a high spatial resolution infrared interferometer, also developed at CSL. © 2012 ESA and CNES. [less ▲]

A combination of digital holographic interferometry (DHI) and digital speckle photography (DSP) allows in-plane and out-of-plane displacement measurement between two states of an object. The former can be determined by correlating the two speckle patterns whereas the latter is given by the phase difference obtained from DHI. We show that the amplitude of numerically reconstructed object wavefront obtained from Fresnel in-line digital holography (DH), in combination with phase shifting techniques, can be used as speckle patterns in DSP. The accuracy of in-plane measurement is improved after correcting the phase errors induced by reference wave during reconstruction process. Furthermore, unlike conventional imaging system, Fresnel DH offers the possibility to resize the pixel size of speckle patterns situated on the reconstruction plane under the same optical configuration simply by zero-padding the hologram. The flexibility of speckle size adjustment in Fresnel DH ensures the accuracy of estimation result using DSP. [less ▲]

We present digital holographic interferometry in the long-wave infrared for monitoring the deformation under cryogenic conditions of a segmented focal plane array (FPA) to be used in a space mission. The long wavelength was chosen for its ability to allow measurement of displacements 20 times larger than DHI in the visible and which were foreseen with the test object under large temperature variations. The latter is a mosaic of 4×4 detectors assembled on a frame. DHI was required to assess the global deformation of the assembly, the deformation of each detector, and piston movements of each of them with respect to their neighbors. For that reason we incorporated the temporal phase unwrapping by capturing a sufficiently high number of holograms between which the phase does not undergo large variations. At last, since the specimen exhibits specular reflectivity at that wavelength, it is illuminated by means of a reflective diffuser. [less ▲]

Usually laser ultrasonic systems use an infrared laser operating at 10 µm to generate the ultrasound in CFRP objects. However this system suffer from an important drawback: optical fiber cannot be used to transport the high energy beam from the laser output to the target which limits the flexibility of the system to investigated complex shaped objects. To overcome this issue, visible light can be used to generate ultrasound. In our case we use a fiber-coupled laser operating at 532 nm. The output end of the optical fiber is placed on an industrial robot arm. The investigated object remains stationary while the optical fiber mounted on the robot arm scan the object. This system offers large flexibility but laser generation at 532 nm is known to be less efficient than CO 2 system emitting at 10 µm. Increasing the visible pulse power is one of the options but optics and CRFF object will be damaged before the same echo level as CO2 generation can be obtained. An alternative solution consists in the investigation of the generation beam size and shape. We recently developed an optical design composed of an axicon lens able to generate annular beam. The diameter of the beam can be adapted. If the axicon lens is removed the optical system provides a disk whose diameter can also be adapted onto the investigated object. Ray-traycing simulations performed with ASAP and experimental beam profile investigated with a beam profiler show good agreement between theoretical and experimental optical design. An experimental comparison between ring and disk shapes will be presented. The comparisons take into account the beam diameter and the beam intensity but also the effect of the angle of incidence will be presented. [less ▲]

The investigation of complex shaped carbon fiber parts is a common need of the industry. Classical ultrasonic systems are commonly used, wide-spread and very efficient. However, these techniques are often limited to simple shape objects. Major problems arise when the shape of the element to be investigated is complex (peak, valley, small radius of curvature…). To overcome these problems laser ultrasonic systems can be used and the recent developments show promising results. Laser ultrasonic systems can use different wavelengths for ultrasound generation. Usually CO2 lasers emitting at 10.6 µm wavelength are used. When a laser ultrasonic system is mounted on a robotic arm, very complex shaped objects can be considered. However, the optical fibers for 10.6 µm wavelength are not capable to cope with laser ultrasonic system requirements. Therefore, infrared systems use jointed articulated beam delivery systems which reduce the flexibility of the robot arm and significantly limit the feasible scan paths. To circumvent this limitation, an all-fibered laser ultrasonic system can be used. In our case the ultrasound is generated with a pulsed laser operating at 532 nm. This system is placed on a robotic arm, the beam delivery is performed through an optical fiber only. Therefore, this system is capable of analyzing very complex shaped objects due to the use of optical fiber only for laser beam transport. But visible generation is known to be less efficient and produces lower quality signals. In order to balance the advantages and limitations of both of these systems a CFRP plate including artificial defects has been investigated with different ultrasonic systems. First we used classical phased-array ultrasounds as a reference to compare the performances of visible and infrared generation systems. The plate has then been investigated with a 10.6 µm laser ultrasonic system. The results are compared with an all-fibered laser ultrasonic system working at 532 mn wavelength. Data acquired by each system allow comparing the visibility of the ultrasonic echoes and the amplitude of background noise. We observe the impact of frequency filtering. We show the main differences on the A-scans and C-scan generated by each system. From these elements, we show the advantages and limitations of each system for the investigation of CFRP with a focus on complex shaped object. [less ▲]
