Paper Abstract

A high-precision optical scale called LDGI (Linear Diffraction Grating Interferometer) has been developed for long stroke measurement to nanometer accuracy. This study presents the principle of newly developed LDGI and its possible waveform errors of output signals. Mathematical methods for waveform error correction, pulse counting, signal subdivision and displacement calculation are proposed. All the digital processes are carried out by software. Experimental results show that the system has high tolerance to geometrical errors of the moving stage. The standard deviation of measured values is within 20nm even up to 18mm long stroke.
