Paper Abstract

An account is given on how to analyze the measurement accuracy of a laser interferometer system. Each component of the system accuracy budget is discussed, including the magnitude of these components. Two important components of this budget; atmospheric affects and optics thermal drift are discussed in more detail. The effects of these two error components have been significantly reduced on the Hewlett-Packard laser interferometer systems by the use of Wavelength Tracking Compensation and a new interferometer.
