Paper Abstract

An oblique-incidence interferometer for testing the flatness of fine-ground surfaces is described. This uses reflecting diffraction gratings to divide and recombine the beams, resulting in a very compact optical system. In addition, the relative amplitudes of the interfering beams can be adjusted, by a suitable choice of the grating orders used, to give fringes of excellent visibility with surfaces having a wide range of refleetances.
