Paper Abstract

The frequency-modulation continuous wave (FMCW) interferometry is used in combination with a reference technique by measuring the linear thermal expansion coefficients in metallic bars. Unlike other methods, the technique shown provides results in real time with a very good accuracy, and fulfills the requirements of absolute distance and displacement measurement. First results yield uncertainties of about 50 microns over a 0.1 - 10 cm dynamic range.
