Paper Abstract

Attitude and position monitoring system of the cube corner prism used in a n optical interferometer, which is originally developed for our Levitated Superconductor Experiments, is discussed. In general, the point to be measured by an optical interferometer does not coincide with the measurement point such as the optical center of the cube corner prism used in the optical interferometer. If the attitude of the object, on which the cube corner prism and the point to be measured exist, changes during the measurements, this result in the measurement error. Using het developed system, the attitude an the position of the cube corner prism in an optical interferometer is monitored from a distant point. Further prospects in applying this developed method to a general interferometer are discussed.
