Scattered light is usually ejected from the DMI, reducing the available optical power, but is not generally a significant problem. org/terms 18 Fundamentals of Light and Interference Michelson’s Interferometer Albert Michelson demonstrated the first interferometer in 1887 using a white light source, a half-silvered mirror, compensation glass, and mirrors. The half-silvered mirror acted as a beamsplitter, and the compensation glass was used for nullling the nominal optical path difference between the measurement arm and the reference arm.
Using long-coherence lasers, displacement interferometers can operate over very long distances, provided that nothing obstructs the beam. This is particularly useful in space applications, where the refractive index, the dominant error source in many applications, is negligible. For example, the LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) gravitational wave space mission has proposed interferometer arms as long as 5 Â 106 km. Additionally, modern signal processing technology with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) or digital signal processors (DSPs) makes phase meter calculations and fringe interpolation relatively straightforward.
Small walkoff changes cause the overlapping area, and thus the fringe contrast, to significantly decrease. org/terms Interferometry System Characteristics 39 Doppler Velocity One of the benefits of displacement measuring interferometry is the ability to measure high-speed Doppler velocities. The Doppler shift fD is the frequency shift induced in the measurement optical beam resulting from target velocity. The frequency shift can be measured as the phase derivative or temporal phase change in a specified period, provided that sufficiently high sampling parameters are met and that the 2p-phase wrapping is successfully unwrapped.
