Abstract

A two-wavelength interferometer that uses two separate modulating currents with different phases but the same frequencies to detect a greater degree of object displacement in real time is proposed and demonstrated. The measurement error was 57 nm, roughly 1/80 of the synthetic wavelength. We have confirmed that this modulating technique enables us to equip our prototype interferometer with a simple feedback-control system that eliminates external disturbance.
