We propose a projection moire´ topography with a phase shift method for measuring the fine profile of an object. In this method, a set of interference fringes made using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer and a dove prism is projected on an object surface to generate moire´ fringes. The interval between the moire´ fringes can be easily changed in a range of 160 to 300 µm and we can realize sensitivity-variable moire´ contouring. Also, the phases of the moire´ -fringe pattern are easily changed by shifting one of the interference fringe patterns and the depth at each point on the object are computed with a high accuracy from the several moire´ -fringe patterns with different phases. Although the interferometer is used in the system, the setup is robust against vibrations.
