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)
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)
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)
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)
A concept for an optomechanical derotator is presented. The derotator allows optical measurements of rotating objects during operation. To guarantee a stationary optical image, the optical axis of the derotator needs to be coaxially aligned to the rotational axis of the measured object. The correlation between the movement of the optical image and a(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)
