Paper Abstract

In this work multiwavelength digital holography, originally applied to calculate the volume displacement of various macroscopic topographic surface features, is now extended to the case of microscopic objects. Accurate measurements of volume displacement for macroscopic surface features has been achieved using long synthetic wavelengths up to several millimeters, generated via tunable IR laser sources. Microscopic volume measurements are performed via digital holographic microscopy using HeNe and Ar+ ion lasers to generate very short synthetic wavelengths. Practical methods of implementation are considered, including wavelength selection error and the geometric effects of both Michelson and Mach-Zehnder recording configurations on phase measurement. Results include comparisons to standard metrology tools, including 1D profilometry and white light interferometry.
