Paper Abstract

Based on Jones matrices theory, the paper researches the error source and action mechanism of the polarized interferometer in nanometer level measurement. It opens the door for selecting optical component, adjusting light set-up and compensating error. According to the theoretical analysis, the main reason that causes error is degeneration of polarization that the imperfect performance of optical components and imperfect adjusting bring. Especially the different delay angle happens more obviously. The characteristic of the passive homodyne laser interferometer based on the polarized phase-shift is that the output of interferometer is four-channel signals in quadrature. Using this characteristic, through strict selecting and fine adjusting components and differential signal processing, the interferometer can perform nanometer measurement.
