D-Sight technique
D-Sight is an optical double-pass retroreflection surface inspection technique developed by Diffracto Ltd in Canada. It is a patented method for visualizing very small out-of-plane surface distortions such as indentations and protrusions. The principle of the D-Sight technique is well described in the literature (Ref. 2). The application of D-Sight for impact damage detection in composite aircraft structures has been addressed e.g. in Ref. 3.

Fig 1: Schematic diagram of the D-Sight set up

The D-Sight optical set-up consists of a light source, a camera, a retroreflective screen and the specimen (Fig. 1). The light from a standard divergent light source is reflected by the specimen. The surface of the specimen must be specularly reflective (specular reflection can be enhanced, if necessary, by wetting the surface with a thin fluid film). The reflected light then strikes a retroreflective screen which consists of numerous half silvered glass beads (typical diameter 60 µm). This screen attempts to redirect all incident light rays at the same angle to the initial reflection point on the specimen surface. However, the screen is not perfectly retroreflective and actually returns a diverging light cone instead of a single ray at the same angle. It is this imperfection of the retroreflective screen that creates the D-Sight effect. The light is reflected again by the specimen and collected by a camera placed slightly off-set from the light source. When the specimen is perfectly flat the camera sees the specimen with a uniform light intensity over the surface. An out-of-plane surface distortion, on the other hand, will result in local intensity differences. These intensity differences are caused by the imperfection of the screen because the light intensity returned by the glass beads is dependent on the viewing angle of the light cone relative to the incoming light ray. The result is that the surface distortion will appear brighter on one side and darker on the opposite side of the surface distortion, depending on the local slope of the surface. The process hence converts variations in surface slope to changes in light intensity (Ref. 2).
