In this paper we present phase shifting Talbot interferometric technique to draw the profile of the gas turbine blade. In Talbot interferometry phase shifting is implemented by giving in-plane translation to first grating by using precision translation stage. To obtain the phase connected with the object, the additional phase change stepwise, with a step of π/2 at least three times is introduced and the intensity patterns corresponding to these steps are recorded as Talbot interferometric fringes pattern. Experimentally recorded interferograms have noise due to grating lines and speckles. These noises are filtered by using Fourier filtering technique. The phase map made by using Fourier filtered data. Height variations/profile of the gas turbine blades made by using phase shifting Talbot Interferometry are compared with the results obtained from Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) having coordinate measurement facility with the resolution of 1μm. The results are in good agreement.
