Optical interferometric metrology techniques are being increasingly used in industry. These techniques assure a greater accuracy in measuring displacements caused by deformations. One such technique, electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI), has been used successfully to measure in-plane deformations. This study has led to an improved 3-dimensional geometric model, allowing assessment both qualitatively and quantitatively of what is actually measured throughout all the inspected surface. Calculations with practical parameters taken from a real ESPI instrument designed at the Joint Research Centre of Ispra (Italy) were carried out. The results showing three-dimensional diagrams of the error measurements are presented and discussed.
