Abstract
We propose an approach for three-dimensional (3-D) refractive index (RI) measurement of special optical fiber by phase-shifting digital holographic microscopy based on optical vortex. The experimental system consists of a modified Mach–Zehnder interferometer and related lab-developed software. The phase shifts are obtained by loading different computer-generated spiral phase holograms on a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator with digital blazed grating, which is more accurate than the traditional phase-shift methods. The optical vortex generated in +1 diffraction order of the diffraction field is utilized as the reference beam. Eight digital holograms with the phase-shift increments of 0, π  /  2, π, and 3π  /  2 are recorded by a CCD before and after the tested optical fiber is placed in the experimental system. Then, a four-step phase-shifting algorithm and phase unwrapping algorithm are adopted to extract the phase distribution from the holograms. Based on a filtered backprojection algorithm, the 3-D RI distribution of the tested fiber is obtained at high accuracy. Experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method for 3-D RI measurement of special optical fiber.
