Paper Abstract

Techniques of optical sensing are not new to engineering metrology and optical instruments have a long history of successful application in this field. Recent advances in the application of lasers, the development of detectors and the use of computers have produced many new optical techniques for making fast, accurate measurements of engineering parameters. The benefits of improved metrology accrue from assured compliance with specifications, lower failure rates and better performance. The application of new optical techniques reduces measurement time and shortens the calibration chain.
