1 October 1999 Fourier optic online measurement of the dimensional variations in paper
Author Affiliations +
All commercial paper types have a more or less apparent periodic pattern, called wire mark. We show how a Fourier optic analysis of this pattern can be used for on-line measurement of the dimensional variations of the paper in a paper or printing machine operating at a realistic speed (10 to 20 m/s). The way in which motion blur should be avoided during the exposure of the spatial light modulator, required to transform a spatially incoherent image of the paper into a coherent one, is also studied. Three techniques for doing this are discussed: rotating prism, rotating mirror and inverse filtering.
