The Possibilities of Increasing the Accuracy of Measuring Absolute Distances by the Method of Spectral Low Coherence Interferometry

Abstract

The possibilities of improving the measurement accuracy of fiber-optic sensors of absolute distances of the nanometer range using the spectral method of fiber-optic low-coherence interferometry have been investigated. The possibility of measuring the distance with an error of no more than \( \pm 15~\) nm in the range of 20–250 μm has been shown.
