Paper Abstract

Phase modulation amplitude Zb caused by a sinusoidal wavelength-scanning and conventional phase α of an interference signal are kept at π and 3π/2, respectively, with feedback control systems for a displacement of an object larger than a half-wavelength. A voltage applied to a device that provides the wavelength-scanning becomes a ruler marked out every a wavelength. Real-time distance measurement is carried out with this interferometer.
