Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new high-accuracy micro-displacement positioning system controlled by a diffraction grating interferometer. The principle and technique are given, based on which micro-displacements are measured by an interfering system consisting of a spectral grating. In order that the interferometer is stable and reliable for several days and nights, the interfering signals are program-controlled. The movement of the diamond is even and smooth due to locked phase of the bridge generator with frequency division of crystal oscillation. The locked phase of the interfering signals with the bridge is controlled by Bang-Bang and PID modes. The movement accuracy of the engine is measured and analyzed by interpolation. The division error: (sigma) <3.1 nm. The grating quality can be determined from the spectral contour obtained by Fourier transform. As a result, it is corresponding with that obtained by spectral means.
