Paper Abstract

Two light beams reflected from a front and rear surfaces of a glass film of 20 micron thickness interfere with each other in a common path interferometer. Sinusoidal wavelength-scanning light with the scanning amplitude of 5 nm and frequency of 15 KHz is used to generate a sinusoidal phase-modulated interference signal with the modulation amplitude of 2.6 rad. The phase of the interference signal provides the thickness variation of the film, whose measurement accuracy is a few nanometers. Moreover, in order to achieve a high spatial resolution and a wide measurement region a focused beam is scanned on the surface of the film with a rotating mirror.
