In this paper a comparison of different techniques to obtain vibration patterns by phase stepping on an electronic speckle pattern interferometer (ESPI) is made. The theoretical evaluation of the contrast of the fringes shows that the (pi) phase step method gives good contrast; however, the four step method gives the same contrast along with better pictorial representation. Speckle averaging on the other hand also increases the contrast of the fringes apart from smoothing of speckles. Experimental results corroborating the theoretical predictions are also presented.
