Abstract
A technique has been developed to produce plane equidistant contouring surfaces on tooth-imprints. This technique consists of spatially filtering a negative obtained by photographing the imprint under a Moire illumination. Unfortunately this technique turned out to be very sensitive for a non-uniform surface reflectivity. To obtain an object-brightness depending only upon the contouring mechanism, the imprint has been coated with a fluorescent dye. A HeCd-laser (λ=422 nm) served as a lightsource for the projection of the Moire-interference pattern on the imprint. The radiation of the fluorescent coating (λ=530 nm) is used to form an image on the negative. In this way the surface with specular reflection properties is transformed into a Labertian surface. The spatial filtering technique allows multiple exposures of the final negative enabling an increased depth of field. Contour mappings with a resolution in depth of less than 10 μm have been obtained.
