Paper Abstract

Conventional low-coherence sources used in 'white light' interferometry have previously limited the optical system resolution, due to the inefficient coupling of light into a single-mode fiber. The theoretical and experimental operation of sensors illuminated by a multimode laser diode source are presented. The principle advantages are discussed.
