The uncertainty of measurements made on an areal surface topography instrument is directly influenced by its metrological characteristics. In this work, the vertical axis deviation from linearity of a wavelength scanning interferometer is evaluated. The vertical axis non-linearities are caused by the spectral leakage resulting from the Fourier transform algorithm for phase slope estimation. These non-linearities are simulated and the results are compared with experimental measurements. In order to reduce the observed non-linearities, a
modification of the algorithm is proposed. The application of a Hamming window and the exclusion of edge points in the extracted phase are shown to increase the accuracy over the whole instrument range.
