Paper Abstract

In the evaluation of processed material such as metal, it is important to detect the geometrical surface of the material as well as inequalities in processing. In the case of optical evaluation, the penetration depth of light into the material is one of the most serious problems. This paper presents a method of optically evaluating the quality of processing, using ion beams, lasers, etc., with a resolution of nanometer order. The principle of the method is based on measurement of the difference between the phase changes of light reflected on the material for two colors. The optical system is composed of a two-color laser phase-locked interferometer.
