Paper Abstract

The measurement resolution in white light interferometry is, to some extent, determined by the coherence length of the light source used. By the use of multi-wavelength combination source, the equivalent coherence length can be greatly reduced. In this paper, the fringe pattern from a multi-wavelength combination source consisting of three commonly used multi-mode laser diodes is transformed into a discrete fringe pattern. The system has a stable output and is suitable for high precision white light interferometric measurement where good system stability is required.
