Abstract
In this work we present a method to investigate surface features based on the scanning of a focused beam over the surface and the interpretation of far field data. It is shown that the measured data is the sliding window spectrum (SWS) of the surface. Inspection of the SWS can be used to identify different surface features, and to perform high precision measurements for certain surface structures. By sampling adequately the SWS we measure the amplitude of the surface Gabor expansion coefficients and build the Gabor diagram. A projection onto constraint sets (POCS) algorithm is used to reconstruct the surface from the Gabor diagram. The constraints are provided by the physical characteristics of the surface and by the far field measurements. The projections between the constraint sets are implemented using the Gabor transform theory. Computer simulations and experimental results show that this method can reconstruct accurately shallow phase objects.
