We present an algorithm for estimating the color demixing matrix based on the color fringe patterns captured from the reference plane or the surface of the object. The advantage of this algorithm is that it is a blind approach to calculating the demixing matrix in the sense that no extra images are required for color calibration before performing profile measurement. Simulation and experimental results convince us that the proposed algorithm can significantly reduce the influence of the color cross talk and at the same time improve the measurement accuracy of the color-channel-based phase-shifting profilometry.
