For the application of interferometric methods in industrial quality control and particularly in non-destructive material testing an extensive analysis of the obtained image data is needed. In the field of optical image processing wavelet transformation has been proved to be a capable tool in the detection of structures with definite spatial resolution. The selection of the analyzing wavelet function and the variation of parameters lead to a wide range of selective wavelet filters, which are able to perform detection and classification of structures. The presented paper demonstrates numerical simulations and their optical realization in an SLM- based correlator. To locate defect patterns of different classes in interferometric fringe patterns, several wavelet functions, which are optically realizable by a transmission distribution, were utilized. The optical experiments indicate a good accordance with the computer simulations.
