1. Spatially Resolved Stress Measurements in Materials with Polarisation-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography: Image Acquisition and Processing Aspects

    Abstract: We demonstrate that polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is suitable for mapping the stress distribution within materials in a contact-free and non-destructive way. In contrast to transmission photoelasticity measurements, the samples do not have to be transparent but can be of scattering nature. Denoising and analysis of fringe patterns in single PS-OCT retardation images are demonstrated to be the bases for a quantitative whole-field evaluation of the internal stress state of samples under investigation.
