Corrections for Wavelength Variations in Precision Interferometric Displacement Measurements

Published

Author(s)

Jack A. Stone Jr., Steven D. 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 correction necessary to fully account for variations in wavelength.
