Author Affiliations +
This paper describes an optoelectronic setup which has been designed in order to evaluate some finishing process parameters of textile fabrics such as emerizing or raising. This evaluation is usually performed by trained people and our goal is to perform it in an automatic and objective way without any human operation. Our setup evaluates the periodical structure of fabrics through a temporal Fourier analysis of the degree of polarization of the light reflected by a fabric surface. The measurement sensitivity to surface hairiness is shown to be greatly improved when polarization is taken into account.
