Paper Abstract

A frequency-modulation absolute distance measurement techniques using a external-cavity semiconductor laser is proposed. A reference interferometer was adopted in order to reduce the effect of the central frequency drift of the laser on the measurement accuracy. The principle of the measurement is described and the experimental setup is introduced. The measurable range is as large as ten meters.
