Stereo deflectometry is defined as measurement of the local slope of specular surfaces by using two CCD cameras as detectors and one LCD screen as a light source. For obtaining 3D topography, integrating the calculated slope data is needed. Currently, a high-order finite-difference-based least-squares integration (HFLI) method is used to improve the integration accuracy. However, this method cannot be easily implemented in circular domain or when gradient data are incomplete. This paper proposes a modified easy-implementation integration method based on HFLI (EI-HFLI), which can work in arbitrary domains, and can directly and conveniently handle incomplete gradient data. To carry out the proposed algorithm in a practical stereo deflectometry measurement, gradients are calculated in both CCD frames, and then are mixed together as original data to be meshed into rectangular grids format. Simulation and experiments show this modified method is feasible and can work efficiently.
