    Abstract

    Light beam scanning using a dispersive element and wavelength tuning is coupled with fibre-optic interferometry to realize a new surface measurement instrument. The instrument is capable of measuring nano-scale surface structures and form deviation. It features active vibration compensation and a small optical probe size that may be placed remotely from the main apparatus. Active vibration compensation is provided by the multiplexing of two interferometers with near common paths. Closed loop control of a mirror mounted on a piezoelectric transducer is used to keep the path length stable. Experiments were carried out due deduce the effectiveness of the vibration compensation and the ability to carry out a real measurement in the face of large environmental disturbance.
