Title

Design of Optical Triangulation Devices

Abstract

This paper presents the derivation of the precise relation between the displacement of a light spot on an object's surface and the displacement of its image on the detector in an optical triangulation device, along with applications of the design of triangulation devices. Based on this relation, improved designs of optical triangulation devices, including devices of adjustable configurations, are proposed and discussed.
