English abstract:
Objective laser speckles can be observed as intensity pattern from free space
propagation of coherent light that is diffracted from a technically rough surface. Utilizing this
pattern allows for very localized non-contacting measurement of surface displacement as well
as strain, and carries a high potential for miniaturization. Existing objective speckle techniques
suffer from decorrelation effects, dramatically decreasing the performance of such measurement
techniques. In this paper we present a compensation based displacement measurement scheme,
where we keep the measured speckle pattern displacement close to zero by actively following
the measuring objects movement in a feedback operation. This converts the image sensor into
a zero-detector, what considerably improves the speckle pattern correlation over a significantly
extended measurement range.
