Paper Abstract

The laser interferometer is ideal for calibrating the linear axes of machine tools but it is not so easy to develop a satisfactory test procedure to yield values of accuracy and repeatability as might at first be expected. This problem is being studied by an ISO working group and some of the problems which arise are discussed.
