A new technique for fully automatic diffraction fringe measurement in pointwise analysis of speckle photographs is presented. The fringe orientation and spacing are initially estimated with the help of a 1-D fast Fourier transform (FFT). A 2-D convolution filter is then applied to enhance the estimated image. A fringe pattern with high signal-to-noise ratio is achieved, which makes feasible precise determination of the displacement components. The halo effect is also optimally eliminated in a new way by a halo-division technique. High reliability and accurate determination of displacement components are achieved over a wide range of fringe densities, with the computation time comparing favorably with those for the 2-D autocorrelation method and the iterative 2-D FFT method.
