Martin, Haydn and Jiang, Xiang (2008) Stabilising fibre interferometers. In: Proceedings of Computing and Engineering Annual Researchers' Conference 2008: CEARC’08. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 75-80. ISBN 978-1-86218-067-3

Fibre interferometry holds many advantages for the online measurement of high precision surfaces. However, the method requires stabilising against path length change due to temperature drift and vibration. A method of stabilising such an interferometer using intensity feedback was examined and shown to be ineffective at low frequencies. A second method, using real-time calculated phase feedback was also investigated, and was observed to be more robust.
