Paper Abstract

A two-wavelength laser-diode interferometer has been constructed that is based on heterodyne detection with one phase meter. Two laser diodes are frequency-modulated by mutually inverted sawtooth currents on an unbalanced interferometer. The tested phase at a synthetic wavelength can be measured from the sum of interference signals with equal beat frequencies in opposite sign. The experimental results are shown to measure the displacements longer than an optical wavelength with the resolution of a 4.7-micrometers synthetic wavelength. The periodic phase error is theoretically investigated and is experimentally verified.
