Paper Abstract

An interference system for the measurement of flatness and the perpendicularity of the end face of an optical fiber is shown. The system is based on a microscope interferometric objective and resolve differences of flatness of 0.3 micrometers . The resolution in the measurement of face angle has been estimated as 0.063 deg for optical fibers of 125 micrometers in diameter.
