We propose an adaptive filtering approach for interferograms, which is a modification to the Lee adaptive complex filter. Based on local frequency estimates, we compute the normal orientation of local phase fringes. A directionally dependent filtering window is aligned perpendicular to the normal orientation of local phase fringes (i.e., along local phase fringes) by interpolation, making the pixels included in the filtering window have approximately more homogeneous values. Moreover, the computation of the filter parameter does not require local phase unwrapping in the real plane. This filter minimizes the loss of signal and reduces the level of noise. By using two sets of simulated data, its effectiveness can be seen in terms of the fidelity to noise-free phases, fringe preservation, and residue reduction.
