Abstract

We present a device for measuring displacement based on the Talbot and the nonsteady photo-electromotive force effects. The proposed device does not require any numerical signal processing since its output signal is, in appropriate regions, linearly related to the measured displacement. The proposed system requires an illuminating field with a sinusoidal amplitude distribution and low fringe visibility. The dynamic range can be adjusted according to the illuminating field spatial period or wavelength. Displacements with an estimated resolution better than 10 μm in a dynamic range of 1.5 mm were detected using a sinusoidal amplitude grating with a period d=100μm.
