Abstract
We report an algorithm for searching and tracking the center of the circular interference fringes. The algorithm was programmed by VB.NET for processing the interference images captured by CCD camera. Images were changed into binary gray-level format by the Otsu method. The circular scanning method was used to extract the outline of circular interference fringes, and then the coordinates of the perpendicular subtenses were used to remove noise pixels. Finally, the coordinate of the center was calculated by statistical method. The experimental results are in good agreement with the simulation images. The algorithm had subpixel accuracy and anti-noise ability. Thus, the algorithm can be used in accurate measurement for its automatic processing ability.
