      Abstract

      Interferometery is an important technique which can provide high resolution measurement of surface
      topography. In this paper an interferometer with a dispersive probe, sourced by a super-luminescent diode is considered. One important parameter for the effective operation of such an interferometer is the fringe visibility. In this paper the fringe visibility of the first order diffracted light is compared with the reflected (zero order) light from the grating. This is done by modulating the reference beam of the interferometer and recording the fringe modulation on a CCD array. The fringe visibility formed from the first order beam was found to be lower than the zero order, resulting from the efficiency of the diffraction grating.
