Paper Abstract

White-light scanning interferometry is a powerful technique for three-dimensional (3D) shape measurements of optical devices, industrial parts and microstructures. In order to obtain high performance out of this technique, many algorithms have been proposed such as phase-shifting, zero-crossing and Fourier-transform based methods. However, all of these algorithms require that the interferogram be sampled over a wide range. Unlike these conventional techniques, we here propose a weighted integral method that gives an estimate of the envelope peek position from only a fraction of the interferogram.
