Paper Abstract

Scanning interferometers detect motion through optical fringe modulation. The fringe visibility depends on optical alignment and the modulation purity depends on mechanical stability. Efficient designs employ a mix of active and passive means to achieve high performance and to maintain it over long time and in adverse conditions.
