Paper Abstract

The design of far infrared phase-shifting Twyman-Green interferometer is described in this paper. An IR interferometric method is used to evaluate the surface roughness of ground glass. It is conducted that a rigorous mathematical analysis to describe the contrast of the interference fringes patterns and surface roughness. The experiment is run at the instrument of self-developed interferometer which aperture is Φ 30mm with accuracy better than λ/50 (λ=10.6μm). The mathematical derivation is verified with experimental data obtained from various values of roughness.
