Abstract
The inspection of laser treated stainless steel alloy is performed via a microcomputer on-line to a digitizer which records interferograms produced using projection interference techniques. Heating was performed by an high power industrial carbon dioxide laser. Special image processing algorithms were developed to extract the heat variation features from the surrounding background. The results reveal the quality of the laser heat treatment and its effect on different areas of the alloy. Lateral and depth resolutions of the order several microns were achieved. A topological mapping of the treated material is presented as the three dimensional color (or shades of gray) contour of the surface.
