41. Diode Lasers in Length Metrology: Application to Absolute Distance Interferometry
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Lowell P. Howard, Alois Stejskal
Abstract: Diode lasers are becoming increasingly important in length metrology. In particular, the tunability of diode lasers makes them attractive for applications such as absolute distance interferometry (ADI). In this paper we describe the current status of ...

42. Sources of Error in Absolute Distance Interferometry
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Alois Stejskal, Lowell P. Howard
Abstract: In this paper we describe the status of our research on the use of diode lasers for absolute distance interferometry, and we discuss the major sources of uncertainty that limit the accuracy of this technique for distance measurement. We have primaril ...

43. A Simple Technique for Observing Fringe Interpolation Errors in Michelson Interferometers
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Lowell P. Howard
Abstract: We describe a simple, convenient method for measuring nonlinearities in displacement-measuring Michelson interferometers. Nonlinearities with a spatial periodicity of one optical fringe are a well-known source of error in precision interferometry. Ou ...

44. Testing Displacement-Measuring Interferometer Systems
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Martin Schroeck, Michael T. Stocker
Abstract: We have made a study of one method for testing displacement-measuring interferometer systems, a modified back-to-back comparison, that automatically compensates for changes in the optical path length between the two interferometers.  Although th ...

45. A Differential Wavelength Meter for Laser Tuning
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Lowell P. Howard, Jack A Stone Jr
Abstract: A simple interferometer for matching the wavelengths of tunable lasers is described. Our interferometer uses the angular dispersion of a diffraction grating at the Littrow angle to produce a tilted wavefront with respect to a reference mirror in an o ...

46. Benchmarking the Length Measurement Capabilities of the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6036
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Richard M Silver, J Land, Jack A Stone Jr, Ronald G Dixson, Bryon S. Faust, James Edward Potzick, Michael T Postek, et al
Abstract: A cross-section of measurements from the Precision Engineering Division within the National Institute of Standards and Technology is benchmarked against other leading National Measurement Institutes. We present a variety of length-related calibration ...

47. Corrections for Wavelength Variations in Precision Interferometric Displacement Measurements
Published: 9/1/1996
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Steven David Phillips, G Mandolfo
Abstract: Precision interferometric displacement measurements require deadpath corrections to account for variations in wavelength during the course of the measurement. This paper discusses common errors in applying deadpath corrections and describes the corre ...

48. Fabry-Perot Interferometers for Small Displacement Measurements
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Lowell P. Howard, Fredric Scire, Jack A Stone Jr
Abstract: A description of a Fabry-Perot interferometer for measuring small displacements is given. The instruments consists of a fiber-optic-coupled actuator and mirror guiding mechanisms, a tunable diode laser for tracking the changes in cavity length and a ...

49. Novel Methods for Length Measurement Employing Diode Lasers
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Lowell P. Howard, Alois Stejskal, M Stephens, C Oates, L Hollberg
Abstract: Diode lasers have several unique capabilities for length-measurement applications, arising from properties of the diodes that are much different from those of the venerable helium-neon laser presently used for most interferometric measurements. For e ...

50. Wavelength-Shift Interferometry: Using a Dither to Improve Accuracy
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr, Alois Stejskal, Lowell P. Howard
Abstract: A dither in path length can dramatically improve the accuracy of wavelength-shift methods used for absolute distance interferometry. Here we report how a dither improves the accuracy of absolute distance measurement by two orders of magnitude, reduci ...
