In the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) Project, under construction in southern France, there will be a need for continually measuring the erosion at the wall, after the machine starts operating. A multiple wavelength interferometric technique based on digital holography is proposed for the erosion measurement. This technique has the ability to tackle the challenging environmental conditions within the reactor by a long distance measurement, where a relay optic will be used for imaging the investigated surface on the detector. We will show that shape measurements of objects located at a distance of more than 13 m from the measuring head can be carried out by the multiple wavelength interferometric technique. A depth accuracy of ±10 μm is achieved.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
