Paper Abstract

Throughout all this paper we are going to analyze one application of the optical beam deflection method, the procedure for its development, as well as its ideal implementation to reach measurements of displacements that could be the most accurate and of the smaller scale possible, this condition is essential for the magnitude of the results to evaluate. We also give and introduction of the optical beam deflection method, it is characteristics and some of their latest applications as an auxiliary technique on research and commercial fields. This present work will be analyzed the laser beam deflection technique, the procedure to apply, as well as its ideal implementation in order to obtain measures of displacements that can sense to the most exact and of smaller possible scale, obtaining results from microns, micrometers and until nanometers. The importance of this work resides in that the technique although is simple and has easy implementation, the results that can hurtle they are very reliable; thanks to it, the laser beam method of deflection has been not only diffused in many fields of the science and the technology of the optics, but also in those where its application is innovating. This has ended up being a technique of huge utility on interdisciplinary use and has been used to measure physical parameters in a great variety of experiments.
