Paper Abstract

In the Twyman-Green type interferometer the absolute height of a sample can be measured using a broad-band light source. The reference mirror is scanned along the optical axis to detect the point that the optical path difference is zero. We can obtain a three dimensional contour map without restricting 2(pi) phase unwrap. We constructed an interferometric system using a white-light as a light source and measured a step of 20 micrometers .
