Abstract

We present a defect-enhancement system capable of detecting submicrometer defects on opaque periodic structures using real-time holography in photorefractive crystals. We detect 0.5-μm defects with ~90% success rate and 0.3-μm defects with >85% success rate while inspecting an area greater than 1 mm2 in real time. To our knowledge, these defects have an area 100 times smaller than those previously detected with any real-time holographic technique.
