51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

54. Frequency Stabilization of a Green He-Ne Laser
Published: 8/20/1995
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Alois Stejskal
Abstract: A new process for stabilizing the frequency of commercially available 543 nm He-Ne lasers is described. The stabilization method is based on anomalous dispersion of the gain medium. A total of four green lasers have been stabilized - two at the Natio ...

55. Computer Modeling of Heterodyne Interferometer Errors
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: Lowell P. Howard, Jack A Stone Jr.
Abstract: A computer model and methodology for modeling optical mixing errors in heterodyne interferometers is presented. The model is based on the Jones calculus and uses a matrix formalism to eliminate simplifications and reduce assumptions in the model. The ...
