Paper Abstract

New developments with the focus-wavelength encoded optical profilometer are reported in the area of applications to surface contouring. Longitudinal chromatic dispersion of a suitably designed lens as a probe is exploited to obtain distance information between the probe and the surface. After proper scanning, the surface topography is recovered.
