Abstract

We propose a photothermal phase-modulating laser diode interferometer equipped with a high-speed feedback control system. The CCD camera’s shutter-function raises the modulating frequency, which in turn elicits a higher feedback response, thus enabling us to eliminate nearly all external disturbance. With the recent application of a system purpose-built for discriminating between numerous fringe sequences, we have also reduced processing time.
