Paper Abstract

Interferometric methods of sinusoidal, single-frequency phase modulation and two-frequency phase modulation have been investigated and compared as applied to displacement measurements and wavefront testing. A procedure of an experimental estimation of the periodic error which is a basic component of a systematic error of interferometric systems is developed. It is shown that the conventional single-frequency phase modulation method is preferable when it is desirable to have extreme resolution or maximum accuracy, while the method of two-frequency phase modulation will be more rational when small dimensions and weight of the device are of basic concern.
