Abstract

An optical frequency-domain interference microscope with a liquid-crystal Fabry–Perot interferometer as an optical frequency-scan device was developed for microscopic three-dimensional shape measurements. The proposed system can perform absolute measurement of the discontinuous surface profile of a microscopic object without use of mechanically moving components such as a piezoelectric transducer or a grating spectrometer. Experimental results are presented that demonstrate the validity of the principle.
