Paper Abstract

A double integrated interferometer is proposed for absolute distance and velocity measurements with directional discrimination. An injection current-modulated laser diode is used as the wavelength tunable light source. One of the interferometers is used as a reference for systematic calibration. The second one permits the test distance measuring. The calibration enables the compensation of instantaneous fluctuations of the frequency modulation, the output light power drift, the frequency deviation, the refractive index and other external environmental disturbance corrections. The system is used for distance measuring from a few millimeters to 500 mm with a resolution better than 10 micrometers .
