Digital evaluated differential interferometry using adjustable spatial carrier fringes was applied to flow measurements in a transonic turbine blade cascade. The interferograms were evaluated using a two-dimensional Fourier Analysis. This evaluation provided density gradient maps of the flow field in a digital form. A specially designed interferometer was used allowing adjustment of sensitivity and superposition of carrier-fringe system separately. This type of interferometer is also highly insensitive to vibration noise. For a turbine blade cooling film a comparison of this type of differential interferometry with holographic interferometry and a Schlieren visualisation is also given. As a result differential interferometry using adjustable spatial carrier fringes and digital fringe analysis gave density-gradient maps similar to Schlieren recordings but of quantitative nature, thus enabling compensation of wave front distortions. Integration of these density gradient maps resulted in density maps which were then compared to recordings done with pulsed holographic interferometry.
