In this research, we propose to modify a traditional stereo microscope for quantitative 3-D surface profile measurement based on the combined stereovision and phase shifting method. A simple optical system and a miniature projector are used to project phase-shifted fringe patterns to the object surface. Two identical black-and-white cameras are used to capture the fringe images of the object surface, one for each optical channel of the stereo microscope. The calculated phase maps are used for stereo matching at the sub-pixel level. The 3-D surface profile is reconstructed using the triangulation method. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method.
