Abstract

We develop a regularized phase-tracking (RPT) technique to unwrap phase maps. The phase maps that can be unwrapped with this new method may be bounded by arbitrarily shaped boundaries. Moreover, the RPT unwrapper has a higher noise robustness than previously reported phase-unwrapping schemes.
