In this paper, a strategy for the calibration and the measurement process of a multi-sensor fringe projection unit is presented. The objective is the development of an easy to use calibration and measurement procedure. Only one simple geometrical calibration target is needed and the calibration of the projection unit is not mandatory. To make the system(More)
The clinical results of total knee joint arthroplasty with patellar replacement have shown that postoperative problems arise, especially under unfavourable biomechanical conditions. The findings concerning retropatellar contact forces have been obtained by means of different methods, partly through experimental investigations and partly through theoretical(More)
Confocal microscopy is widely used to measure the surface topography of specimen with a precision in the micrometer range. The measurement uncertainty and quality of the acquired data of confocal microscopy depends on various effects, such as optical aberrations, vibrations of the measurement setup and variations in the surface reflectivity. In this(More)
Geometry measurements are very important to monitor a machine part's health and performance. Optical measurement system have several advantages for the acquisition of a parts geometry: measurement speed, precision, point density and contactless operation. Measuring parts inside of assembled machines is also desirable to keep maintenance cost low. The(More)
One of the main tasks of the quality test is the inspection of all relevant geometric parts related to the predefined tolerance range, whereas the uncertainty of measurement has to be less than the tolerance range. The reachable uncertainty of measurement can be determined using method A of the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement(More)
The generation of diffractive optical elements often requires time and cost consuming production techniques such as photolithography. Especially in research and development, small series of diffractive microstructures are needed and flexible and cost effective fabrication techniques are desirable to enable the fabrication of versatile optical elements on a(More)
Low-loss optical-coupling structures are highly relevant for applications in fields as diverse as information and communication technologies, integrated circuits, or flexible and highly-functional polymer sensor networks. For this suitable and reliable production methods are crucial. Self-written waveguides are an interesting solution. In this work, we(More)
